Adam Aircraft of Englewood, Colo., successfully completed initial environmental testing of its A700 very light jet at the McKinley Climatic Laboratory at Eglin AFB in Florida. During the five-day exercise, the twinjet was subjected to temperatures as low as -40 degrees F to evaluate the effects of cold on the flight controls, avionics, environmental control system, engine starters and other critical systems. In addition, the A700's Williams FJ33-4 engines were exposed to freezing fog, freezing rain and blowing snow to evaluate the ground performance of the engine inlet anti-ice system. Adam expects to earn FAA certification of the A700 in the fourth quarter of this year.

““I guess an airplane is pretty decadent, right? But if anyone has a problem with that, tell them to go f--k themselves, because I will live in that trailer [I own] in Alabama before I give up that f--kin’ airplane. That airplane is, hands down, the greatest luxury a human being could have. There’s nothing that f--king beats it. F--k a yacht.” —musician Kid Rock, when asked to name his most decadent purchase  Source: Rolling Stone   ”
