X-Planes: Discovery Through Flight

How can early exposure to flight accelerate the practical use of technology? Panelists with in-depth knowledge of past X-Plane and one-of-a-kind Flight Research Programs share lessons learned from past flight test campaigns, and experiences on what was discovered through flight that wasn’t predicted by ground test.
