Comments:Instrument checkout flight. All instruments functioned properly or were able to be corrected. The flight was conducted in the central San Joaquin Valley and conditions were acceptable despite seasonal wildfires around the area. FAA Oakland air traffic control twice routed us off to the east to get out of the way of other air traffic but we were able to complete all planned objectives.
