I don't. I was involved with a design review of the plane about a year ago, but haven't heard much since. We were reviewing structure, and saw the planes and the video of the flights, but we didn't get into all the parameters of the test flights.... Do you know if they've done tests at full MTOW yet?
Can't comment on that - don't know anything in that area.One of the issues I've had with a lot of these new "air mobility" companies is that they fly their vehicles almost exclusively by remote and, as near as I can tell, without simulating a full payload.
Nope.I'm not actively doubting whether this company is doing that - in fact, given the location of the pilot in the design, I rather suspect that they must have some ballast in the cockpit to keep the CG in-range - but simply wondering if you have any information about testing at full gross.
Of course, since the definition of "MGW" is determined by the company, as is the maximum "G" loading required, it's not clear what it would mean to say that "yes, they've tested to MGW". What if they were only going to attempt certification to 2.5G? Or 3.8G? Or 4.4G? Or 6G? MGW means something different at each one... A bit nitpicky, but still...
