The 8X needed a balanced field length of just 3,200 feet for the flight to Teterboro, carrying four passengers, 13,640 pounds of fuel, 200 pounds of payload, and two pilots.

Shortly after takeoff pilots Franco Nese and Ryan Duveneck briefly reduce power and lower the nose to abate the aircraft’s noise over the city of Santa Monica before climbing to cruise altitude.

Full video coming soon.
