03 Apr SUPERSTOL MAKES IT’S UK MAIDEN FLIGHT!
History was made yesterday, Sunday (2nd April) with the first ever flight in Europe by a Just Aircraft SuperStol, when G-SSTL took off from Sleap Airfield in Shropshire.
With fine weather forecast for the next few days, we are hopeful of completing the initial ten hour test flight programme this week.
Bob Pooler who has the enviable task of completing these initial flights stated “the SuperStol is a delightful aeroplane to fly. It is very stable in the cruise, light on the controls, very comfortable and has excellent all round visibility. I am looking forward to completing the test flight programme and getting the full Permit to Fly. For now though, I am having some difficulty in getting the smile off my face!”.
