In-flight PIV in the sky
first AIM² In-flight PIV flight test took part
The first AIM² in-flight PIV test flight was successfully performed in the night from the 7th of June 2013 to the 8th of June 2013 by DLR.
The aircraft departed from Braunschweig Airport in the late evening of the 7th of June to test the complete in-flight PIV installation and search for clouds as natural seeding to perform first measurements.
Beside the PIV system also a particle sizing system and a traversable pressure probe were on board for verification of the measurements. The scientists recorded several PIV data that will now be processed.
Congratulations and thanks a million to the different teams from DLR (especially C. Politz and A. Grüttemann) and the Leichtwerk AG to enable this first test.
