SonexCTC This morning a manned airplane landed in the CTC runway for the first time. Xavier Fernández, a fellow pilot and close friend, landed his Sonex airplane in the CTC runway. The Sonex is a two place experimental aircraft powered by a six cylinder 120 hp Jabiru engine. With a maximum take off weight of 520 kg and a cruise speed of 225 km/h, the landing of this manned airplane demonstrates that the CTC runway is long enough to safely operate large UAVs.
You can see the video of the airplane take off either in CATUAV's Facebook or Google+.
