DB continues to expand the flight envelope with flying on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Friday and Saturday flying included increasing amounts of water to test for leaks, water dump valve operation and handling characteristics with water. DB reports that all aspects continue to be excellent.
The initial flights have been out of the Tullahoma Airport. The FAA Operating Limitations required the Concordia to remain within the local area. With these initial hours now flown off and the most critical flight characteristics and handling proven safe, Concordia returns home to Falcon Field.
