Here are some images of the editor’s flight test of the Vulcanair v1.0 today in a flight from Naples (LIRN) to Pontecagnano (LIRI) and back via the Sorrento VOR. There were turbulent and windy conditions making for a real test of this Italian high wing offering with a 180hp engine and constant speed unit.
