After moving the partially built components of the all-composite, single-engine Privateer amphibian to Comp Air Aviation in Titusville, Fla. for final assembly, Comp Air technicians have put together major portions of the airframe. In the past three months, the Comp Air team has installed the wings and center section on the fuselage, then attached that assembly to the floats. “The horizontal stabilizer and elevator are complete and ready for control system integration,” according to Comp Air. First flight of the 714-hp Walter 601-powered amphibian is planned in the fourth quarter.
