EASA Licence refresher on a Warrior

Some flights logged out of LGMG for an EASA licence refresher. While the Piper PA-28 is performance wise very similar to the other traditional trainer Cessna 172, their flying qualities and general operation experience significant differences, including Flight Control Mechanical characteristics, manual flap operation and ground effect during landing.

Flying a fly-by-wire DA-42, Wiener Neustadt, Austria

A unique flight on TUM DA-42 research airplane fully FBW and OPV at Diamond Aircraft facilities in Wiener Neustadt, Austria. Great experience trying various control laws using an active stick – probably the only active stick on a Part-23 aircraft in the world. The flight was part of a project investigating options for a variable stability aircraft. Many thanks to TU Munich and Diamond for this opportunity.

T-33 flight with Snort


Snort & Turf (Dec 6, 2017)

A flight in the CT-133 was completed investigating the effect of Reynolds number on buffet and stall speed for the case of a straight wing single-engine jet.
Amazing experience flying with Dale “Snort” Snodgrass, the highest time F-14 pilot and the one who performed that incredible super low, super close pass next to the USS America (CV-66) in 1988.
