On June 12, 2005, at 2:15 p.m., the new Viperjet MKII defied the laws of gravity, lifting off of Runway 21 Right into sunny, blue skies at Tri-Cities Airport (PSC), located in the southeast corner of Washington.
With professional test pilot Len Fox at the controls, the debut flight lasted approximately 25 minutes and concluded without incidence.
“This is an exciting day for Viper Aircraft,” said Scott Hanchette, president of Pasco, Wash.-based Viper Aircraft Corporation. “We’ll be conducting test flights over the next few weeks and so far are very encouraged by the data that has been collected. The Viperjet MKII is something we’re very proud to offer the aviation marketplace; it’s going to offer a lot of bang for the buck.”
The tandem seat, jet-propelled Viperjet MKII employs cutting edge composite technologies set in a sleek, curvaceous fuselage design.
