Abstract:

The report describes the detailed plans for the full-scale windtunnel testing of the U. S. Army XV-5A Lift-Fan Research Aircraft. The test program is designed to investigate the aerodynamic and structural behavior of the aircraft during simulated transition, conversion and low speed conventional flight. Detailed test schedules, instrumentation and data requirements and operational limits are described for the tests that will be performed at the NASA - Ames Research Center in the full-scale, 40 by 80 foot, windtunnel facilities.
