Textron AirLand flies production Scorpion

 

Textron AirLand marked the maiden flight of its first production Scorpion jet on December 22. This followed weapons emplyment exercises with the prototype Scorpion completed in early October.
The production version of the Scorpion incorporates a number of improvements including a new Garmin G3000 integrated flight deck with a large, high-definition display complemented by two high-definition touch-screen controllers and provides more mission capability in the forward cockpit position, additional navigation capability in the rear cockpit position and overall weight savings for improved performance as a multi-mission aircraft. In addition to the new avionics, changes to the airframe include four degrees of sweep to the wings, an enhanced aft horizontal stabilizer for improved high-speed performance, a simplified landing gear design, a next-generation Heads Up Display (HUD) and hands-on throttle and stick (HOTAS) controls.
