- Sport "S Among First to Log 100 Hours of Flight Evaluations



Quicksilver’s New SLSA Sport 25 flight-testing.

In mid-December, Quicksilver Aeronautics completed the entire flight test regimen required to comply with ASTM industry consensus standards that the company expects will lead to FAA acceptance. Quicksilver has produced more than 15,000 kit-built aircraft since the early 1970s; this will be their first Special Light-Sport Aircraft.

“We completed an entire ASTM Design & Performance standard test matrix that demands more than 100 hours of test flying,” said Daniel Perez, Chief Operations Oificer for the California company. He also noted that those flight hours involved 236 takeoffs and landings.

These results follow a long period of other detailed testing and significant document preparation and arranging the factory for repeatable, quality-controlled production of ready-to-fly aircraft. The Sport 28, a strutted, open cockpit, side-by-side two seater is the first to complete the entire compliance package but the company is also underway for their GT 500 aircraft. The latter was the very first aircraft to win FAA Primary Category approval 20 years ago. in 1993.
