Aero-TV: Something Old, Something New -- The Launch of Kestrel Aircraft

Alan Klapmeier Fills In More Details On The Kestrel Development Program

One of the best pieces of news to come out of Oshkosh 2010 (outside of the fact that the floods had abated) was the announcement and details surrounding two amazing 'Re-Introductions' -- the rebirth of the speedy and rugged Kestrel turbo-prop program and the re-emergence of Cirrus Founder Alan Klapmeier to lead yet another innovative aircraft development program.

Kestrel Aircraft is a new company formed to complete the FAA certification and produce the Kestrel. The company will be led by CEO and Chairman Alan Klapmeier and other seasoned professionals with broad aviation and business experience.

Alan has a rich and distinguished background in aviation. In 1984, he founded Cirrus Design and until recently, led the company which manufactured the largest selling piston aircraft in the world. He resigned from the company in 2009 to pursue other aircraft development ventures.

The Kestrel development team notes that the program represents the application of advanced materials, advanced aerodynamic theory and cutting-edge construction techniques to produce a striking aircraft that redefines its class, yet is safe and easy to operate.

The Kestrel breaks new ground in aircraft performance, delivering a maximum cruise speed higher than competing models, an impressively short climb time to cruise altitude at maximum weight, and the option to fly further, faster, while carrying more. No other single-engine turboprop comes close in performance and versatility.
