Griffon Aerospace SeaHunter Cruises at 15,000 ft. at -32C with custom fuel injection systems from Power4Flight and Currawong Engineering
A University of Alaska Fairbanks’s Griffon Aerospace SeaHunter climbed to 15,000 ft altitude over Eastern Canada while conducting flight operations for Arctic UAV and Transport Canada Aircraft Services Directorate.
Ground temperature at takeoff was -20C and -32C at the 15,000 ft cruise altitude.
SeaHunter is powered by two Desert Aircraft DA150 engines equipped with custom fuel injection systems from Power4Flight and Currawong Engineering.
Larry French, CEO/CTO of Griffon Aerospace, said: “Well this breaks a whole lot of Griffon records! The P4F fuel injection certainly made it possible for SeaHunter to operate reliably under conditions never before experienced by any of our systems!”
