22 Thursday 22 November HQ Lecture

Flight Testing of the Beriev Flying Boat

This Royal Aeronautical Society Flight Test Group lecture will see Paul Mulcahy, Senior Test Pilot, CAA, discuss the flight testing of the Beriev Flying Boat.

During Paul's service he saw action in both the Falklands (Victor K2, 1980’s) and then in Gulf War 1 (Tristar 1990s). Paul left mainstream RAF for the Empire Test Pilots School in 1993 and served a further 3 years with Fixed Wing Test at Boscombe Down. Now with 10,000+ hours and having flown some 230+ types he has considerable experience in civil certification and is currently responsible for a dozen EASA projects including the new Mitsubishi Regional jet and the Bombardier C Series. 

Paul will outline his several hundred seaplane hours, with his experience spanning some 9 aircraft types and including various microlights and several SEP.  It was his association with, and 160+ hours of experience, on the PBY5A Catalina that gained him the responsibility for the Large 42-Ton Russian Beriev Be- 200 certification project which commenced with an application to EASA in late 2005. This lecture will outline that story with its many ups and downs.

All RAeS Lectures are free to attend and we welcome both Members and Non Members.
