aesguerra Posted July 18, 2011 Share Posted July 18, 2011 After half a dozen ground runs to familiarize myself with the systems and checklist flows, I finally lit the cans and took her into the air. I still haven't attained supersonic. Today's flight was more getting-to-know-you, so it was restrained to subsonic up at FL360, ranging out 110nm west from Nice Côte D'Azur before looping back for the return. I almost busted that sound barrier - looked down and notice the Mach meter passing .98 before I was able to snatch back the throttles. I know, it'd have been easy, but I'm determined to have this bird down before I crack that 1.00 number. Thanks to the wife for the airport scenery. Cheers, Alex Quote Link to comment
