P3 has been flying in Pozzallo, Sicily, since March and has completed its first block of flight tests.
An average flying rate of 9 flights per week has been achieved with P3, which is already going successfully through its first scheduled inspection without any major findings.
The performed flights, which involved a series of manoeuvres aimed at confirming the aircraft performance and handling characteristics, have produced a lot of useful data allowing to further expand the aircraft flight envelope towards the Type Certification target.
A more detailed report on the achievements will be released in June.
