Test flights : Longest flight
le 30-03-2012 19:30:00 (2507 lectures)

I found a problem with a connexion on the pitot line and after that I went flying. The authority requests a long flight so I stayed aloft for two hours. I pushed the enveloppe by climbing to 6500ft measuring speeds and fule flow.
During the descent I reached max speed of 195kts for a 200kts red line.
I then did some corsswind landings, there was some light trubulenc which needs the pilot to stay focused to land properly. I will have to train a bit more to be really comfortable.
I still have to fly 40mn in the test program before flying with the first passenger.
