Abstract : The Research and Development Division of the United States Air Force Instrument Flight Center conducted an operational test and evaluation of the Teledyne Avionics (formerly Automated Specialties) Normalized Angle of Attack System. The conclusions of the evaluation are; the Teledyne Avionics angle of attack system accurately displayed the percentage of lift the wing was producing for all flap configurations, the system components were highly reliable throughout the program, the angle of attack information is easily interpreted and flown, and the normalized concept of presenting angle of attack information is a far superior method than displaying it in 'units' or some other meaningful quantity or term.
