Abstract:

This TOP provides an overarching compilation of flight test techniques used in the conduct of both fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft. These techniques include procedures for conducting handling qualities and performance flight tests. Classical flight test techniques are taught at the recognized test pilot schools. Many Flight Test Manuals are available to document these tests and test techniques and are referenced in this TOP to provide a single source for currently approved procedures within the Army flight test community. Additional tests and test procedures are included for those tests not recognized as classical techniques.
