Attention Spotters - Prototype Cessna In Flight

According to FlightAware, the Cessna NGP (N99110) has just departed ICT, and is enroute to Jackson, Mississippi (JAN). It's scheduled to arrive at 11:46 am CDT.

The reason I bring this up is that virtually no photos of this airplane exist. The only shots I've ever been able to find are of the unveiling low pass over Oshkosh last year:



.....and photos that I suspect are of a mockup:




Do you see any sticks or yokes? I don't.....


Flightaware lists N99110 as a Skylane, but I think it's the NGP.

If anyone reading this lives anywhere near JAN, please go forth and photograph!

According to the FAA website N99110 is reserved for the Cessna Airplane Co with no type assigned.

It probably does not have a designator, so they have it filed as a 182. However, if you look at the airspeed, it is going much faster than a typical 182. Flightaware is tracking it going 185 kts. Now granted they could have a tailwind, but when checking the charts, the winds aloft were they are only shows a tailwind in the neighborhood of 15 to 20 kts. This would put their airspeed at around 170, which is above the typical 182s cruise speed of 145. So this would leave me to believe this is the prototype flying.


Tailwinds!!!

It's showing 197 now, and I saw 200 early on into the flight.....

As of 10:00AM CST it's showing 188, way to fast to be a Cessna 182 w/ or w/o a tailwind.

While I am certain it is the NRP, 188kts is certainly not too fast for a 182 with a tailwind! I've done 197kts GS in a 182RG.

I believe the NGP is on its way to Sun 'N Fun in Lakeland, FL.

Well... It has arrived in JAN. Peak ground speed of 212kt, with what appears to have been a 40ish knot tailwind. 172 KTAS? Nice!

I stand corrected.

This winds aloft chart for 10,000 ft shows tailwinds up to 80 kts at 10,000 ft. The plane could be going 160 kts, with a 60 knot tailwind. Just watch as it comes over Florida and the winds aloft switch to a crosswind, then the plane's true spedd might show.

I can't see any sort of stick or yoke in the above cabin photo.

I wonder if they'll go with an arrangement like their 1990 concept for a new 210:

Quite possible and also not unprecedented, as the Cirrus already has a stick/yoke type input device (see below)

Cessna LSA video from Sun n' Fun. I thought this was the airplane this thread was about, but maybe not.
Oh Well - I'll post the video anyway...
