The test program is designed to demonstrate integrity of aircraft structure and the information presented will be used to establish detail test procedures. The particular flight and landing load conditions to be simulated during test have been derived from structural analysis using the conditions specified in the Airplane Structural Design Criteria and have been found critical. A detailed listing of all test data requirements is given. The particular loads and reactions to be applied to the airframe and the major components are also given. Along with the strength tests, some additional control system tests are to be performed and are also described.
