Late in the first week of January 2016, the first two customer Aeroprakt A32 Vixxen aircraft arrived at CAE Aircraft Maintenance, Moorabbin Airport, near Melbourne, after their long sea journey in a 40 foot container.
This short video – thanks, Mike Rudd – gives a little insight into what goes on when the aircraft arrive and re-assembly starts. Although the physical re-assembly only takes a couple of days, making sure the paperwork is all present & correct, and getting the registration signed off takes a fair bit longer.
As soon as the aircraft is registered, I can test fly it – I’ll aim to video one of the tests so you can see what’s involved there.
Hopefully, these two – the first of eight so far ordered – will be ready for their new owners in the next week or so.
