Abstract : A procedure for use in the determination of 'position error' at low altitudes of airspeed systems and for the calibration of such systems is presented. The procedure describes a flight test technique, reduction of the test results by use of nomograms and a simplified statistical method for determining position error correction for different indicated airspeeds.
