A test program was conducted to obtain the damping characteristics of the vanes and to provide a flow calibration of a newly developed flight path accelerometer FPA. After earlier calibration results identified an interference problem from the sideslip vane strut on the angle-of-attack vanes, the sideslip vane was moved rearward, necessitating additional calibration tests. Results are reported.
