Flaris Jet under test

Embryo Polish light jet manufacturer Flaris has issued a statement noting that the yet-to-fly much delayed Lar 1 is currently undertaking ground tests.

These include the hydraulic system and the landing gear extension arrangement.  Additionally, other tests are being conducted for the proprietary FFAS on-board computer, which integrates Garmin G600, a navigation system popular among General Aviation pilots, with the next generation digital autopilot produced by Genesys Aerosystems as well as the proprietary auto-throttle which controls the ECU computer of the Williams FJ33-5A engine.

Flaris says the objective of these tests is to gather information and inspect the compatibility level of onboard computers.

First unveiled at the Paris Air Show 2013 the Flaris is said to be the world’s smallest, fastest and most advanced business jet, creating a new class of High Speed Personal Jet (HPJ). Owing to its glider-like characteristics and an emergency parachute system, the safety of this aircraft is unrivalled according to Rafał Ładziński, the originator and manufacturer of the jet.  It is designed to operate from small club airfields.
