Farnborough Aircraft’s struggling turboprop-single program has received the backing of former Rolls-Royce chairman Sir Ralph Robins and the ex-CEO of BAE Systems, John Weston. The UK company went into bankruptcy last year, but has now been restructured and is hoping to fly an F1 prototype before the end of next year and receive certification in 2007. Sir Ralph will chair Farnborough Aircraft’s advisory board and Weston will join the board of directors.
