Abstract:

The report covers the field testing program for a directional glide slope antenna system. These tests were conducted at the following operational airports with problem site conditions Kanawha County Airport, Charleston, West Virginia, and Greater Pittsburgh Airport, Corropolis, Pennsylvania. The tests were conducted by Federal Aviation Agency personnel after the equipment was installed at the site by ITT Federal Laboratories personnel, who also acted as observers during the flight tests. Included in this report are typical flight recordings as well as the glide slope characteristic curves resulting from the in-flight data. The analysis of this data establishes satisfactory Category I operation at both sites with probable Category II operation at the Charleston, West Virginia, site. Author
