Day one, checking out the ship

When delivering an aircraft you’ve never seen before the first thing you do after giving it a thorough pre-flight is to take her out for a spin.  During the test flight you check all the systems on the plane, making sure that everything works as advertized.  You only have a short flight to decide weather or not if you’re going to trust that strange aircraft over the ocean.  You can also have a little fun during the test flight, have to ensure that the plane can do a proper wing-over if the need arises.  sometimes you can get in a little sight seeing as well.  When Marcio, my co-pilot for this trip, and I were done checking out the systems on the jet we took a pass inside Sydney harbor.  Sometimes this job is a little bit of alright.
