Abstract:

The Military Potential Test of the Model 500B Fixed-Wing Instrument Trainer was conducted by the US Army Aviation Test Board during the period 3 September to 16 October 1964 at Fort Rucker, Alabama. Flight under actual and simulated instrument conditions and demonstrations to personnel representing the US Army Aviation Center and the US Army Aviation School were conducted during the test period. It was found that the Model 500B test airplane as changed by the technical proposal will meet all of the requirements contained in the Model Specification. It was recommended that a confirmatory test be performed on the initial production airplane if the Model 500B airplane is selected as a fixed-wing instrument trainer.
