13. SUPPLEMENTARY NOTES14. ABSTRACT
 
This document is intended as a reference source on the topic of aircraft performance flight testing.Formulas are derived for equations of motion, altitude and airspeed. It covers the various performancemaneuvers, including takeoff, landing, cruise, acceleration, climb, and turn. Specialized tests to calibrate airdata systems and to dynamically determine aircraft lift and drag are discussed. Lift, drag, thrust, and fuel flowanalysis methods are presented. Special topics include gravity models, aerial refueling, terrain following, andeffects of temperature and wind. The text is primarily for conventional jet aircraft, however, many of theequations and methods are applicable to light civil aircraft.
