AW09 flight tests move forward in Mollis, Switzerland

During the past months, the AW09 crew made an in-depth evaluation of all improvements installed on P3 early 2021.

Significant data were gathered in handling qualities and performance with a number of aerodynamic modifications tested.

Also, assessments of the human factors confirm that the Garmin cockpit is well suited for the AW09.

Evaluating the aircraft at 16,000ft was a great achievement within the programme in expanding the altitude envelope.

All these tests contribute to the final preparation of PS4 and PS5.
