Two test flights were scheduled for today, but because of a required training in the afternoon, we only had one test flight. Xinrong was on this flight and all instruments worked well.

There were a few minor issues we were able to correct after the flight. With the Internet connection during most of the flight, we were able to connect to the aircraft laptop that acquires data from all instruments, which may allow us to fully control the aircraft instrument operation procedures from the ground in the future, i.e., we may not need to have someone fly on the Twin Otter if the aircraft laptop can be connected to the Internet during the flight.
