Abstract:

An evaluation and study was conducted of the Bendix Standardized Angle of Attack AOA System for its use in Air Training Command flying training programs. The Bendix AOA System was installed in T-38, SN 70-1549 for engineering flight test. The aircraft was then flown to Randolph AFB for pilot factors evaluation and determination of exactly what flying maneuvers could be flown using AOA as the controlling parameter and how AOA should be used in these maneuvers. Subjective data on the procedures and techniques for AOA use were gathered from twelve T-38 instructor pilots from the Pilot Instructor Training PIT and Instrument Pilot Instructor School IPIS at Randolph AFB. The conclusions from the study are given.
