The T-38A aircraft was subjected to flight and static tests at ambient temperatures up to 115 F at the El Centro Naval Auxiliary Landing Field, California. No serious deficiencies were encountered. The cockpit temperatures were unsatisfactory however, the refrigeration package in the test aircraft was not a production unit and is to be replaced by a more efficient unit in the production aircraft. Tests proved maintenance of the aircraft in a desert climate presents no unusual problem, but strict adherence to operational procedures, as affected by high temperatures, is necessary.
