The FAA Regional/Commuter Aircraft Flight Loads Data Collection Program 931258

As a part of its International Aging Aircraft Research Program, the Federal Aviation Administration is establishing a state-of-the-art Flight Loads Data Collection Program. Data collected in this program will provide the necessary mission profiles and load spectra information to characterize typical fleet service usage for the regional/commuter service life extension program. In addition, these data are applicable for both a safe life fatigue analysis and a damage tolerance fracture mechanics analysis. This paper describes the FAA approach and schedule for instrumenting fleet service aircraft, and the data reduction process.
