Javelin Making Noise And Moving Out

Jet Handed Over to Flight Operations

If you've dreamed of flying a sleek jet, get ready! The Javelin is getting closer to first flight. Aviation Technology Group, Inc. announced the aircraft has successfully completed engine tests and initial taxi tests at the company's headquarters in Englewood, CO.

The Javelin rolled out on May 5th, and was handed over to flight test operations. ATG began engine and taxi testing over the past few weeks. Engineers tested the Javelin's Williams International FJ33-4-15M engines for the first time in the Javelin using external power, followed by tests using the prototype's aircraft battery.

Both engines were run from idle to full power during the test series. The engine tests were followed by the initial taxi tests, which will continue over the next few weeks.

"The initial taxi tests demonstrated tight turn capability, accelerations and stops, and showed no drifting, no PIO tendency and good braking. Offset and recapture tests were successful as well. I taxied with speeds up to 27 knots and hit each test point with no anomalies," said Rob Fuschino, Javelin test pilot and ATG Vice President of Operations. "I would characterize the first Javelin prototype taxi test as outstanding."

"This is a very exciting time for ATG," said CEO George Bye.  "The aircraft has successfully taxied and run its engines and systems.  It will not be long before we see this remarkable, high performance jet take flight."

It's an exciting time for many aviators as well. Pilots looking for high performance have typically flown old warbirds. The Javelin is designed to be fully aerobatic, modern and safe. Advanced aerodynamics, modern avionics and efficient engines will make this a plane to watch.

With first customer deliveries scheduled for late 2007, you've still got a little time to save up the $2.8 million required to call one your own.
