The new owner of the assets of bankrupt Adam Aircraft plans to certify an improved version of the A500 push/pull piston twin rather than resume manufacturing the aircraft under its existing certification, according to a report at AVweb, which notes that Thomas Hsueh, owner of Triton Aerospace, of Anacortes, Wash., is not satisfied with the aircraft as it was certified and the new aircraft, as yet unnamed, will weigh 800 to 1,000 pounds less than the original. Hsueh said he’s also not happy about the recertification plan but it’s the only alternative to get the airplane he wants and one he’s sure has a “pent-up demand,” according to to the AVweb report.
