I read in the Denver Post this morning that AAI, is bringing back the A700, but are still looking for design engineers. I thought the airframe was already built and engines picked before Adams' chapter 7 bankruptcy. Good news for the locals, the facility is staying at Centennial Airport in Colorado.

Weren't there multiple issues getting the A700 through certification up to the point when the company halted operations? I read about some of the A500 payload range issues. Did they manifest in the A700 as well?
How will the aircraft fare in a market that now has heavy hitters like Cessna, Embraer, Piper, and Cirrus that have products in service or in testing?
