ARES Airborn Again

After 6 months of down time, the Scaled Composites ARES aircraft returned to the air again on August 21, 2013.  After completing several successful check flights, the team transitioned into training flights.  The crew demonstrated their pilot proficiency with an FAA representative observing which culminated in the issuance of ARES Experimental Authorization’s for both Mike Alsbury and Clint Nichols.  The single seat turbofan powered aircraft will continue to support customer testing for years to come.
