In mid-December Evektor ran the EV-55 Outback’s Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-21 engines for the first time. During the test run at Kunovice Airport in the Czech Republic, “engines and propellers performed properly,” the company reported. “This is a first but important step on the way to first flight, which is scheduled for the first half of this year.” The EV-55 is a high-wing twin turboprop with a projected top speed of more than 220 knots designed to operate from unpaved runways.
