Flight Testing Homebuilt Aircraft
by Vaughan Askue

Now that it's built, how well will it fly? This book tells how to test your aircraft systematically and safely, with professional results. It defines flight testing as a four-phase step-by-step process of learning the limitations of an aircraft; defining and eliminating aircraft problems; and determining aircraft capability and optimum flying techniques all with minimum risk to pilot and machine. With straightforward description and more than 80 illustrations, the book teaches builders to use this process to design thorough, safe flight tests customized to specific aircraft in specific testing environments. It concentrates on envelope expansion and solution of structural problems. It also teaches the value of the process for maximizing familiarity with the aircraft and improving overall piloting skills. 177 pages, paperback.
