Abstract:

A T-2C and a TA-4J aircraft were suitably instrumented for recording engine usage data. These aircraft flew typical training profiles which were obtained via pilot interviews. Based on flight data, the duty cycles were calculated for each trainer to establish design requirements which apply to the VTX system. A VTX duty cycle was developed from this study.
