Introduction to FW Performance & Flying Qualities Flight Testing (T&E 4007)

Course Description

This course is designed to satisfy the demand for engineers, pilots and flight test support personnel who require practical experience in aircraft performance, stability and control, handling qualities, flight test instrumentation data handling, as well as a working knowledge of FAA and military specifications pertaining to piloted aircraft.

Classroom academics are tailored to prepare the students for practical in-flight tests.聽 Seven flights are performed in a medium weight aircraft. These aircraft have been instrumented to serve as in-flight laboratories.聽 On each of the sorties the students participate as flight test engineers, gathering data for post-flight analysis. One additional sortie is flown in light aircraft to allow the students to give practical hands-on experience in performing the various flight test techniques as a pilot.聽 At the conclusion of the course, students present their findings and recommendations on both mission suitability and regulatory compliance in an oral report to the staff.
