THE FIRST FLIGHT OF THE FIRST CUSTOMER OWNED QUICKSILVER S2SE SLSA!

On 19 September 2014 the first flight of the first SLSA sold to a customer took place in French Valley Airport, just north of Temecula, CA.

Previous to the flight the Designated Airworthiness Representative (DAR) on behalf of the FAA made the inspection to grant the temporary airworthiness certificate that allows the flight test to be done. The DAR made the following comment: "I remember the Quicksilvers of the old days that looked like VW Rabbits, this (airplane) looks like an AUDI now". He was particularly impressed by the robustness and solid feel of the craft, from the struts to the sails.

The flight went smoothly and the airplane flew beautifully. It only required 112 ft for take off at the hands of the test pilot.

The customer (Torrey Ward) was very impressed and happy with his aircraft that carries the new asymmetrical sail set pattern. This pattern is exclusive to the SLSA's to differentiate them from the experimental homebuilt aircraft that Quicksilver continues to manufacture.
