Abstract:

The report explaines FAA tests in a large turbojet airplane of the trailing cone technique for measuring static source error. During the test series a total of nineteen 19 flights were flown investigating the physical and operational parameters affecting trailing cone system performance. Several items pertinent to conducting trailing cone calibrations are also discussed. Recommendations are stated regarding application of the technique to airworthiness determination and establishing eligibility for 1000 foot vertical separation.
