Introduction to Flight Testing Using an Aerobatic Trainer 1999-01-5534
A course has been developed to provide an Introduction to Flight Testing to link classroom theory with the practical world of flight testing. The dual-control aerobatic trainer used for this course can perform most of the typical flight test maneuvers used for civilian or military testing, but at a fraction of the cost. This one-flight course was designed to introduce University engineering students to the disciplines of flight testing. The course covers basics of Performance testing together with stability and control. Stalls and spins are also demonstrated, and the students are introduced to basic aerobatic maneuvers.
