REMOS GXiS Takes Off for Maiden Flight

 / No Comments

Today, May 26th, 2016, our REMOS GXiS took off for its maiden flight after the ground tests were successfully completed and the required permissions were issued by the authorities. First we did some taxi tests with increasing speed until the nose wheel came up. At 11:20 UTC pilot and engineer Christian Majunke took off for the first flight from the runway in Pasewalk. In total he and Daniel Browne spent about one hour in the air. All values were in the green and the aircraft behaved as expected: Just great like every REMOS does. The full speed range from stall to high speed cruise was flown.
What will happen next? This first flight marks the kick-off for the flight tests required for the European LSA certification. For this, an excessive flight test campaign has to be accomplished. Christian Majunke: “We will fly the aircraft throughout its entire flight envelope up to the maximum load factors, take off and landing performance, noise tests, spinning, flutter and many more. Plenty of work – let’s go!”
