Book on flight testing

I am the author of "Homebuilt Aerodynamics and Flight Testing", an introduction mostly intended for aircraft homebuilders or those who perform first flights on experimental aircraft. It covers basic aerodynamics and has a list of flight tests with test cards and descriptions on how to perform the tests and data reduction. There are also examples of how improvements can be made if the characteristics are not satisfactory. Because experimentals come in many configurations, brief descriptions about the most important characteristics of for example flying wings, pushers, canards, seaplanes, gliders, biplanes unusual twins etc. are included.

The book is available in the UK from the
LAA or in the US from my web site www.caro-engineering.com.
