Flight Testing Homebuilt Aircraft by V. Aske Flight Testing Homebuilt Aircraft by V. Aske
The majority of experimental aircraft flown each year, says the author, are homebuilt planes tested and piloted by their builders. This book offers the homebuilder safe, effective techniques for flight testing in detail that is often only touched upon in journals or derived with difficulty from technical manuals. Step-by-step explanations guide the homebuilder through flight preparation, taxi tests, first flight and envelope expansion, discussing common stability and control problems and ways to resolve them. An excellent compendium of practical tips and oral lore to reduce the risks and improve the performance of every pilot and builder. Soft. 173 pages.
