Historic first test flight delayed

The date of the proposed first test flight to St Helena has been put back from July to “in or around September 2015”, it has been announced.

The calibration flight is needed to test the various navigation systems to guide aircraft towards touchdown on the island’s first airport.

Work on the airport is understood to have been progressing well and no reason has been given for the decision to put back the flight, which is needed for the airport to be certified for civilian use.

Basil Read, the company building the airport, said: “The revised date will comfortably meet the schedules of all involved organisations and has no effect on the certification process in November, nor on the contract completion date of February 2016.”
