This course provides an overview of airplane performance theory and prediction, certification standards and basic flight test practices. The course will focus on turbojet/turbofan powered aircraft certified under JAR/CAR/14 CFR Part 25. This standard will briefly be compared to military and Part 23 standards to show different approaches to safety, certification, operational and design differences.
- Basic airplane performance theory
- Determining what to test in order to build performance models
- Using required instrumentation to best measure airplane performance
- Minimizing scatter during flight testing
- Developing performance models to match flight test results
- Certification requirements
- How to demonstrate certification compliance
- Presentation of airplane performance information to the flight crew
- Setting operational limits to ensure continued operational safety
This course is designed for aeronautical engineers in the design or flight test departments, educators, aircrews with engineering background, and military personnel involved in managing fleets of 14 CFR Part 25 (FAR 25) certified aircraft.
