15th April, AERO Friedrichshaven.  HPH launch a new variant of the HPH Shark.

The Shark eS uses mature established Front Electric Sustainer technology to give its customers the choice as to what power system they want to prevent unwanted field landings.

Both systems have real advantages which is why HPH have decided to let the customers choose which they prefer.

More photos will appear here soon, as the Shark eS makes its first test flight.  Your UK agent hopes to fly the Shark eS shortly, and will report on his findings.

The First UK Shark MS has now converted to a CAA CofA and ARC and is operating under the BGA CAMO.  This is the culmination of years of work between HPH and EASA with help from the CZ CAA and in this case from the UK CAA.  It also establishes a proven route to convert a Permit-operating HPH Shark onto a UK CofA.  In practice, once certification was complete the conversion was straightforward and will be much easier going forward.

The Shark Jet uses the same airframe, so only a couple more tests and some paperwork will allow the Shark Jets to convert in the same way. 12 Months on, I hope to be converting the Shark Jets using this same process.
