Abstract : A series of flight trials was performed on the F-111C aircraft at the RAAF's Aircraft Research and Development Unit in February and October 1987. Data obtained from the tests were analysed at the Aeronautical Research Laboratory to determine the aircraft aerodynamic and control derivatives. This report describes the methods and computer programs which are used to process and analyse the flight test data. Data handling procedures, pre-analysis flight data processing and the methods used to make corrections to air sensor measurements are described. Although the test programme was conducted on a F-111C aircraft, with minor alterations the computer programs and procedures can be used for other aircraft test programmes.
