The GA10, the latest offering from GippsAero successfully completed its first flight at Latrobe Regional Airport in eastern Victoria on Tuesday May 1 2012
The 10-seat multi role aircraft is based on the very successful GA8 Airvan, and is the first single turbo-prop aircraft developed in Australia. Powered by a Rolls Royce 250 turbo prop engine, the GA10 is expected to deliver a mix of performance and economy, and suit a wide range of applications from passenger and freight work, skydive, air survey and surveillance roles. The new aircraft will be available for customer delivery in the first half of 2013.
GippsAero CEO, Dr Terry Miles, said “The GA10 will bring an entry level turbo prop utility aircraft to the market place enabling a stepping stone approach from 4 seater, 8 seater to 10 seater aircraft.The projected low acquisition cost and low operating cost of the GA10, coupled with its great versatility, will offer operators a commercially viable multi role turbo prop aircraft.”
