  • Describes GPS (Global Positioning System) test method for airspeed calibration and rapid-wind camera method for takeoff performance

How fast does it fly? How nimbly does it climb? What speed will induce stalls? What's it's glide ratio? Are the instruments accurate? Pilots need this information for safety—but they also want it for fun and bragging rights. With UNDERSTANDING PERFORMANCE FLIGHT TESTING, you can get accurate data on your home built, kitplane, or production aircraft easily and precisely, without headscratching, complex instruments, or wrestling with higher math or engineering formulas.
