Giulio Ranzo, CEO of Avio, at the end of the works of the Commission, commented: “we thank for the great and fruitful work carried out during these weeks.
We are already working to implement the corrective actions within the time frame set by the Commission and we are confident to be able to go back to fly in the first quarter of 2020.
We look confident and with trust to our future – concluded Ranzo – and we keep our focus on the two main objectives for the first part of 2020: to make Vega go back to fly and the Maiden Flight of the new Vega C”.
