New owners have taken over the insolvent Kestrel program and plan to bring the single-engine all-composite turboprop through to certification. The new Farnborough Aircraft brought the original prototype to the Eur-Avia International Exhibition in Cannes and to the EBACE show static display. The six-seat Kestrel prototype first flew in 2006, and the design offers 350-knot cruise and 1,500-nm range.
