Flight Testing the E-Go
– Keith Dennison
BOSCOMBE DOWN / 6th December 2016

Keith had an illustrious career in the RAF, including commanding Boscombe Down as Chief Test Pilot, a position that he also later held at BAE Systems.

He is a display pilot at the Shuttleworth Collection and is working as an independent aerospace consultant worldwide. He has flown everything from a Bleriot to the Hurricane and Eurofighter/Typhoon – beside which the e-Go seems quite conventional.

e-Go aeroplanes was formed in 2007 to develop and market a range of light aircraft, of which the single-seat e-Go is the first. Over 100 people and organisations have contributed to the development, in what has been a unique community project.

The e-Go aircraft is going through the final stages of testing and is in production. It is an unusual single-seat aircraft – a canard with an exceptionally light structure, efficient airframe, Wankel engine and advanced avionics. This advanced design has inevitably faced a number of challenges.

Keith Dennison, Chief Test Pilot, will relate the story of testing the E-Go and describe how the team overcame the challenges they faced.
