Mission: 
SLAP Local 2021
Mission Summary: 

Fifth of six operator training flights to prepare for science flights this summer.

Departed KLFI and leveled off at 1000 AGL science altitude. Proceeded to perfom water calibration over Kerr Reservoir, then performed a new water calibration technique along Lake Gaston and Roanoke Rapids Lake. Performed a water calibration over Lake Drummond.

Performed a water calibration over buoys in the Chesapeake Bay Northeast of Hampton, then returned to KLFI.

Second flight was sixth of six operator training flights to prepare for science flights this summer.

Departed KLFI and leveled off at 1000 AGL science altitude. Proceeded to farmland south of the Great Dismal Swamp which contains irrigated and non-irrigated areas in an East-West gradient, and flew four science lines. Fault conditions were intentionally introduced into the instrument data system to train operator.

Performed a water calibration over buoys in the Chesapeake Bay Northeast of Hampton, then returned to KLFI.
