Abstract:

The Military Potential Test of the Model B55-B Fixed-Wing Instrument Trainer was conducted by the US Army Aviation Test Board during the period 2 September to 26 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 B55-B 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 B55-B airplane is selected as a fixed-wing instrument trainer.
