Work is progressing on Spectrum Aeronautical’s all-composite S.40 Freedom midsize jet, but the first-flight dates have been pushed back, from a previously planned end-of-2008 to late 2009 or early 2010, according to director of sales Gary Bushouse. Even with the delays, the Freedom will likely be the next all-composite jet to take flight, now that the Grob SPn program has been halted. FAA certification of the Freedom should follow 12 months after the first flight, he said.
