Flight Info

Flight Plan:


WPT R1253 ZEBRA LFMV 4405E TUPOX LUPER LFMF CNM SOKDI DRAMO SINRA TIXIT RUBIT MC WT LFML

Steep Climb: As soon as you take off from LFML, pull up and try to climb to FL100 as fast possible (around 4000fpm).

High Speed Touch & Go: In this test, you will descend and and do a touch & go at LFMV at the highest speed you feel confident with.

FL310 climb/Top Speed Test: After you takeoff from LFMV, climb to FL310 (the TBM’s ceiling altitude) at about 3000 to 4000fpm. Once you level off at 31,000 feet, put your engine to full power and do a steep decent to achieve the maximum speed of the TBM 930. Level off at FL100.

Banking Test: Here we ask you to turn off NAV mode and try your best to follow to sharp truns on the flight plan as best as you can. This will test the banking capability of the aircraft.

Stall Test: Starting at RUBIT, put your engine on idle and dump your flaps. Continue doing this until you reach the slowest speed possible and stall. Then level off at 9,000 feet at a more reasonable speed.

Steep Descent/Landing With No Engine: Cross fix WT at 9,000 and then decend steeply to the runway. On about a 3 mile final, shut off your engine and attempt to land without it.

We recommend practicing these maneuvers before the event. Listen to @AIDoLS on the event PM for more instructions.
