Farnborough Aircraft's F1C3 Kestrel high-speed, single-engined turboprop prototype, N352F (c/n 0001), undertook its first flight on July 29, 2006 at Bend, Oregon. The six-seat aircraft took off at 1508hrs flown by chief test pilot Graham Archer, who reported that the Kestrel performed flawlessly. After an initial flight-test programme at Bend, it will be flown to the company's UK base and then fly on to Abu Dhabi to undertake a two-week promotional tour. The aircraft, development of which was initially launched in October 1999, is to be manufactured by the Gulf Aircraft Partnership, a joint venture with Abu Dhabi-based Gulf Air Maintenance Company (GAMCO).
