EASA Certifies GB1 GameBird From Game Composites

Approval Comes Only Four Years After Aircraft Was Introduced

EASA has certified the GameBird GB1, a full composite airplane designed for full aerobatic up to +/- 10g. It has two seats in tandem configuration and can be used for aerobatic training and competition in all aerobatic levels.

Game Composites is a young and dynamic European Design Organization based in the UK.

The certification of the GB1 was completed in only 4 years, which is remarkable, taking into account the amount of technological innovation involved and the size of the Design Organization.

The design goals aim at providing pilots with a competitive airplane in terms of handling characteristics, performance and cockpit comfort while giving special attention to the manufacturing costs.

The certification of the GB1 GameBird airplane from Game Composites paves the way for design and certification of new technologically advanced General Aviation aeroplanes.
