Thursday, October 20 had been on our project schedule since January as our target date for the first COAST test flight. Thanks to the great folks at CIRPAS (http://www.cirpas.org), we started instrument integration last Friday, Oct 14. All went well with installation and procedure review. The team has been here all week working hard for Thursday. Thursday came and went with nothing but fog, but today we have been lucky and the fog cleared by 12:30. After a quick mechanical test flight with no hitches, the first flight test with our three instruments was underway by 2:15.
