GA10

GippsAero announced yesterday that the GA10 turboprop single has flown for the first time, on May 1 from its base at Latrobe Regional Airport in Victoria, Australia. GippsAero test pilot Tony Morris and flight-test engineer Gerhard Jordaan were at the controls of the Rolls-Royce 250-powered GA10–a stretched derivative of the company’s GA8 Airvan utility piston single–during the maiden flight.

The dwindling ranks of Australian-designed and -built Nomad twin turboprops may yet grow again as Gippsland Aeronautics has purchased the Nomad program and plans to relaunch the airplane as the Next-Generation Nomad. Gippsland currently manufactures the piston GA-8 Airvan at its factory at Latrobe Regional Airport in Morwell, Victoria.
