Yesterday, we took part in the Noise Measurement at Grenchen (LSZG). Luckily, we have been progressing smoothly through the flight test phase, so we were ready for this already. There are only two events each year, one in spring and one during fall. The noise measurement is a mandatory requirement before eventually being able to get an unrestricted flight permit and being able to travel throughout Europe. The results aren’t out yet, though. Will be very interesting to see and also hoping for the quietest category D, in order to burden lower landing fees.
Also, if we miss significantly, this might mean having to reengineer the whole exhaust/muffler issue or even change props. But let’s hope this remains a worst case scenario.

Also, some great pictures from a few recent flights.
