I was lucky enough last Saturday to be invited for one of the first test flights of the Aberdeen Aerospace Engineering Society.
The rain stayed away for the whole day, but the wind battered us throughout testing, leading to some stunning manoeuvres, and red faces
There was some frantic discussion about the conditions, but two tests went off more or less without a hitch, a big step for the club, which was only founded in September 2019
The first test went well but the landing slightly damaged the front wheel, but that’s what testing is for, so a quick patch and off for a second test
The second test was a test of the automated system they have developed to glide the plane along, that went well as well, all in all the plane survived so the team was thrilled
