Miles Flown:700 miles
Comments:This flight was executed as a single-ship for In Situ data collection and further validation of the instrumentation. It was conducted offshore within the New York center FIR boundary, at altitudes ranging from 500 ft AGL to 20,000 ft MSL. The upper altitude portion was for ozone sensor functional assessment and was approximately 40 minutes in duration. Several target airspeeds were also attained during high altitude transit (~245 KIAS - 292 KIAS) for verification of steady-state system parameters. In and out of cloud data was collected for the remainder of flight, targeting slightly above, below, and within boundary layer conditions during 3 minute level-flight iterations. These terminated with minimum altitude runs before commencing additional cycles of data collection. The predominant cloud layer was located between 2,500 ft and 5,500 ft MSL throughout the flight. All objectives were achieved and no system discrepancies were noted.
