WRIGHT AIR DEVELOPMENT CENTER WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OH
Flight tests were conducted on T-29A Aircraft at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, to evaluate the aircraft for all-weather flying capabilities. All flying was accomplished by personnel of the All Weather Section, Flight Test Division. Data were gathered on operation of the aircraft from take-off to landing under simulated and actual instrument conditions to determine the feasibility of instrument flight and to recommend instrument flight techniques to be incorporated in the Handbook of Flight Operating Instructions. The aircraft was found to be satisfactory for all-weather operations except for restrictions imposed by freezing precipitation during take-off or severe icing at cruising altitude.
