Fellow RV enthusiasts!
This is mainly directed to RV-10 owners in Europe, especially those countries that implement noise certification according to ICAO Annex 16 Chapter 10.
I have an RV-10 here in Sweden and I am finishing up my test phase of flying in the next few weeks.
To get a national airworthy certificate I need to have a noise certificate according to ICAO Annex 16 Chapter 10.
This has proven to be a bit difficult here, due to the lack of testing facilities/personnel.
Swedish Transport Agency, through Swedish EAA, has decided that it would be acceptable to reference an identical aircraft that have undertaken such noise measurement.
I'm now looking for help from any RV-10 owner that has done this test and is willing to share this information.
To be considered identical to mine, these criteria has to be met:
Same aircraft type - Van's RV-10
Same engine type - Lycoming 540
Same exhaust type - Vetterman 6 to 2 (standard)
Same propeller type - 2-bladed constant speed
