Default Anyone know about when the Cessna Sky Courier

I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge about when the Cessna Sky Courier would be ready?

Which feeders are supposed to get it? I heard Wiggins will get them first.

Does anyone know which other Fedex feeders will be getting the Sky Courier and how soon?

My guess is a couple of more years before you see them out on the line based on my knowledge of flight test, certification, and production ramp up.

Tecnam took 3 years from first flight of the P2012 to FAA certification. Cape Air took its first delivery a few months later. Textron may be able to leverage its size and that fact itís a US based company to speed up that process.

Regardless, I think itís a sweet airplane. Hope itís sooner rather than later that they get it out on the line. Iím assuming it will be single pilot certified but it will be interesting to see if the Feeders put SICs in them.
