Abstract : The data reduction procedures used in obtaining fully processed data from raw flight data for trials on a Sea King Mk. 50 helicopter are given. The procedures allow various corrections and calibrations to be applied, removal of noise, and calculation of many additional quantities, some of which are used for kinematic consistency checking purposes. Examples are provided on the running of the various computer programs developed. To assist in the use of the data for validation of the Sea King mathematical model, output is obtained in a form allowing ready comparison between trials and model results on the same graphs.
