mplafleur Posted June 14, 2003 Share Posted June 14, 2003 The Deltahawk has flown again... "In a Monday, 26 May flight lasting just over 1 hour, Doug Doers flew the DH160V4 powered test aircraft to 14,500 feet for a second critical altitude test. The altitude alone is impressive at this early stage of the test flight program, but the Really Big News is that the engine continued to deliver its full rated horsepower at 14,500 feet. Other noteworthy accomplishments were 176 knots True Airspeed in level flight at 14,500 feet and total start-up to shut-down fuel consumption of 5 gallons of Jet-A for a flight lasting 1 hour and 5 minutes."
