Quest Aircraft’s Kodiak turboprop single, which last month neared 100 flight hours, started FAA flight testing in late March. The Sandpoint, Idaho-based company also said the 10-seat airplane has successfully flown at all corners of its c.g. envelope and the projected stall speeds have been validated.

“We continue to be pleased with the performance of the Kodiak in its flight tests,” noted Quest president and CEO Paul Schaller. “We have not encountered any systems or airframe issues that would have resulted in a change of flight-testing procedures.”

The company said the Kodiak will make its public debut this month at the Alaska State Aviation Trade Show, where the air-plane’s full performance capa- bilities will be announced. Additionally, Quest plans to start taking customer deposits for the Kodiak at its Alaskan debut.
