D-Jets flying again

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

Flight testing of D-Jet prototypes 002 and 003 resumed August 31, following the grounding of the jets in March. New funding allowed the recall of part of the development team, said Diamond President Peter Maurer. Design work will be completed allowing production to start on conforming aircraft 004. A one-hour flight of D-Jet 003 included testing of aircraft systems and navigation software. There! A little good news for the Labor Day weekend. Canada, where Diamond Aircraft is located, celebrates that holiday this weekend as well. The company received financing from an undisclosed source to resume the D-Jet program.
