We’ve been working hard to complete certification efforts for the skyBeacon. The FAA has been a crucial partner as we explore ways to bring innovation to certified aircraft, and we look forward to sharing that story when the time is right. In the meantime, please know that we’re working diligently to deliver an exceptional product, and expect certification to be complete this spring.
What is the current status?
We are receiving several calls and emails asking when we expect certification. We previously communicated a Q1 2018 STC AML, but have changed our approach to full TSO certification after careful deliberation with the FAA. As such, we are updating our timing to project a TSO completion in Q2 2018. We are making good progress and are confident it will happen, even if a little later than we initially anticipated. This has been a collaborative process with the FAA and they have reviewed and provided feedback to several of the documents and plans that are required for the final submittal, which will occur by the end of March upon conclusion and documentation of the ongoing test activities.
