The report summarizes the work performed to evaluate the first autopilot coupled Inertial Navigation System installed in a commercial jet aircraft engaged in regular scheduled passenger operations. Contractual provisions are listed and reviewed. Modifications to the Bendix ANASN-46 Navigational Computer used in this program are recorded. Preflight test programs are described. Data taken during 185 flight legs of 43 flights is analyzed for BANC-461 Steering Computer Performance. Calculations are made of cross-track and along-track errors with respect to both the original flight plan and the actual coordinates used in setting up the flight legs. Predicted errors from an earlier report RD-65-126 dated August 31, 1965 are compared with flight results. Author
