The old federal building in Superior, Wis., dates back to 1908. The ornate masonry structure features high ceilings, marble floors and trim, stately woodwork and fixtures, enormous walk-in safes and vaults and massive open spaces. It was being redeveloped for private use when it caught Alan Klapmeier’s eye. This is where Klapmeier decided to set up shop as he and his team work to redesign and launch the Kestrel single-engine turboprop. The Kestrel first flew in 2006 when the company was called Farnborough Aircraft.
Kestrel Aircraft president and CEO Alan Klapmeier announced that Cox & Company will build the wing ice protection system for the Kestrel single-engine turboprop. Kestrel also chose Air Comm to develop the aircraft’s environmental control system (ECS).
A recently approved $30 million federal tax credit package will help Kestrel Aircraft (Booth No. 5585) bolster its presence in Superior, Wis., as the company develops a new single-engine turboprop.
