Abstract : This volume sets forth modern methods of determining the top speed, rate of climb, and range of experimental and production aircraft, their takeoff and landing characteristics, stability, controllability, and maneuverability characteristics and controllability characteristics under extreme flight conditions and in spin recovery. The theoretical fundamentals of flight-testing technique and reduction of flight-test data using modern measurement methods with automatic recording apparatus, telemetry, radar, and cine theodolites are set forth. The book is intended for use by engineers and pilots involved in flight testing and field use of modern aircraft; at the same time, it may also be helpful to students in the aeronautical institutes and to full-time and auditing students at Air Force training institutions.
