USAF Flight Test Engineering Manual - United States Air Force, Russel M. Herrington, Paul Shoemacher - Google knygos
n the late 1940¿s and early 50¿s, planes flew higher and faster than anyone had dreamed possible. The jet age had arrived, and along with it came turbojet and rocket-powered aircraft capable of flying beyond the speed of sound. To assess these aircraft, the Air Research and Development Command developed a series of data reduction methods, and then compiled them in this Flight Test Engineering Manual. It served as a standard technical reference for the flight test engineers, program managers, pilots and support teams for many of the X-plane programs of the 1950s. This reprint represents the first time in over fifty years that this book has been available, and the first time it has ever been made available to the public. it¿s a unique time capsule that provides insight into the era of ¿The Right Stuff¿, when slide rules and punch cards were the cutting edge, and a must-have for anyone interested in the technical aspects of flight test.
