I don’t know how we got late fall weather like this, but it has been fantastic. Today was another one of those beautiful days for flying. So I took 14J out and we got two hours of quality time together. We are still working on breaking in the engine, so it is high power, and not too much testing going on right now. But it is all good fun. I was able to get pretty used to the autopilot, and did get some good baseline performance data for cruise. The ADSB and Garmin G3X system came in handy as well. It called out a traffic conflict earlier than I would have seen it, giving me plenty of time to make a heading change to pass behind a Cirrus at the same altitude. I think that the avionics are going to prove their worth.
Oh, and I got to do some sight seeing too. My buddy Michael’s cabin is in the flight test area, so we had to go and orbit the lake a bit.
