The GippsAero GA10 turboprop single flew last month from the company’s base at Latrobe Regional Airport in Victoria, Australia. The 10-seat airplane circled the airport several times for approximately 20 minutes and performed a low approach before coming in to land, according to GippsAero. Australian certification of the Rolls-Royce 250-powered aircraft is expected in the first half of next year, with deliveries planned to start by mid-2013. GippsAero said it will soon to announce details of a deposit program that will allow customers to secure a purchase position.
