  1. Textron Fields Second Denali Flight Test Article
    Textron Aviation announced today that the second testbed of the Beechcraft Denali has taken to the skies for its first test flight. The first flight for the second unit lasted approximately 2 hours taking the aircraft up to 15,500 feet and a maximum speed of 240-knots. The Beechcraft Denali is a clean-sheet single engine turboprop design by Textron and so far the program has surpassed 250 test hours. Textron expects to add a third flight test article along with three ground test articles.
  2. "This flight is another vitally important step for the Beechcraft Denali program as the aircraft will be used primarily for testing aircraft systems like avionics, cabin environmental control, and ice protection," said Textron Aviation senior v-p of engineering and programs Chris Hearne. "The team has made great progress, accomplishing key goals in the flight-test program, and the Denali team heads into the second half of 2022 with a great deal of momentum." The Beechcraft Denali flight test regime started towards the end of 2021 in November of that year. When Textron initially introduced the Denali, they unveiled it under the Cessna brand but later on decided to bring it under the Beechcraft branding.
