Sukhoi SU-29 Takes to the Sky

September 16, 2023

There are good days and then there are great days! It’s a beautiful day for flying our Sukhoi SU-29! What a powerful beast! Very tricky ground handling with incredible rate of roll, easy to loop, no aerodynamic warning at the stall, but well behaved with easy and prompt recovery. The Sukhoi SU-29 will make for a great and unusual experience for the test pilot and flight test engineer students at the International Test Pilots School.
