Flight tests, with new GE H80-200 engines and AV-725 propellers, in high temperatures were successfully finished.
In terms of remotorization of the L 410 UVP-E20 with a new power plant, another phase of the flight tests (a test of flight performance in high temperatures, up to +50°C) was realized in the UAE. These tests confirmed our expectations concerning improved performance and flight characteristics in demanding conditions with the new power plant.
The next phase of flight tests, concerning the measuring of external noise, will be finished in September 2012.
The route taken for the flight tests to UAE: Kunovice-Beograd - Mitiliny (Lesbos Isle) - Pafos (Cyprus) – Luxor – Medina – Rijad - Ras Al Khaimah.
