Purpose of Flight:Science
Miles Flown:705 miles
Comments:Science flight for the UC-12 in support of ACTIVATE Campaign #3, conducted cooperatively with the HU-25. Departed Rwy08 to ATLIC climbing to 23k ft MSL for initial transit and then descended to 21k FT MSL just prior to ZIBUT due to high cirrus clouds. Research profiles conducted from ATLIC-ZIBUT-ATUGI-3620N/07020W-ATUGI-ZIBUT-ATLIC-KLFI. Winds were predominantly from the W-SW at ~30 kts. Maintained clear air flight with infrequent obscuration due light cirrus layer. Briefly encountered a mid-level layer in the vicinity of ATUGI that may have degraded Lidar data collection effort. Deployed 4 dropsondes at the preplanned locations. Aircraft geolocation was within ~20 nmi throughout the flight, and generally remained with ~10 nmi during the research-focused portion. All objectives were achieved and no system discrepancies were noted - pending post-flight data analysis. Pilots: Coldsnow/Sandeen QNCs: Shingler
