Hi,
this is one of a set of handbooks introducing flight testing principles, theory and practice. I used the whole series for my USNTPS studies. It is thorough, and although including "preliminary" in its title page, is an updated version of a manual in use for decades. It should normally be downloadable as PDF from the TPS Alumni site, currently unavailable.
