Piper Aztec

The Piper Aztec owns to Météo-France and is operated by the service SAFIRE. It measures along its flight track the pressure, temperature, moisture, CO2 concentration and 3- D wind with a spatial resolution of few meters. Its endurance is 2.5 hours (see the detailed description in Part VIII). During BLLAST, it will be based at the Tarbes-Lourdes international airport (LFBT). A time of flight of up to 2 hours can be devoted to measures in the domain of interest for BLLAST. All the flights will be realized under the visual flight rules (VFR), but LFBT is equipped for VFR landing after sunset, which is an advantage given the interest of BLLAST for the evening period. Below are the Piper Aztec flight plans.
