Abstract : This report is a supplement to the article 'Integration of an Airborne Laboratory into the United States Air Force Academy Academic Curriculum' in USAFA-TR-83-2. It contains the test plans, flight test planning guides, and aircraft specifications handouts used during the applications phase of the Department of Aeronautics Airborne Laboratory. Sample calculations and plots from actual flight test data taken by cadets are also included. While at test plans, flight test planning guides, and aircraft specifications were designed to be used with the Beechcraft Sierra and Sundowner, the formats are sufficiently general so that they can be applied to any single-engine, general aviation aircraft. Commonly recognized flight test techniques are used for gathering data, and data reduction is accomplished using accepted procedures. (Author)
