The White Knight Two, Scaled Model 348, made its first flight on 21 December 2008. Pilot for the flight was Peter Siebold, Scaled's Director of Flight Operations, and the copilot was Clint Nichols, also of Scaled. The 1-hour flight explored handling qualities at altitudes up to 16000 ft. We were very pleased with the results of the flight and look forward to continued testing in the new year.
