Performance One Aviation customer Ralph M, Lancair Evolution flew for the first time on July 23, 2013. Bob Jeffrey of Elite Pilot Services (www.FlyEPS.com) was at the controls with the first-flight lasting .7 hours and all systems at the time checked out normal. Bob commented that this was one of the top 3 Lancair Evolutions (Lancair International— http://lancair.com/) he’s flown.
In fact, the plane was working so well that Bob flew N512RM a second time that same day, and put almost 20 hours on it the first week. Once the plane has 40 hours completed during flight-testing,the plane will be painted and Ralph can begin his transition training in the aircraft.
