The Vy 400 can achieve a maximum rate of climb
(ROC) of 1,371m/sec, while its maximum rate of descent (ROD) is 1,219.2m/sec.
Performance metrics revealed during 13 test flights totaliing 18.7h between the first flight on 30 July and 27 August include a full-flap (36[degrees]) stall speed of 65kt (120km/h), 3,400ft/min (17.3m/s) maximum rate of climb
with gear down and the ability to take off in 640m (2,100ft) and land in 730m, both over a 50ft obstacle.
On a low-and-slow approach, this means advancing that throttle and pushing the nose downward so the airplane can accelerate toward maximum rate of climb
. If this doesn't return you to the desired profile in time to land under control, at least you're moving in the right direction for your go-around.
SPECIFICATIONS: 36.7-feet in length with a maximum speed of 288 mph, maximum altitude of 25,000 feet, maximum rate of climb
of 1,800 feet per minute and range of 1,173 miles.
