During the forthcoming 6th Annual ITPS Flight Test Seminar (Dec 14-15, London ON, Canada) I will be delivering a presentation on NDI Principles & Flying Qualities Testing of Modern Combat Aircraft. The presentation will refer to the following:

  • Evolution of FCS for Nonlinear Control
  • Nonlinear Dynamic Inversion structure and Control Allocation
  • F-35 FCS characteristics and FQ testing cases
  • Preparation for FQ testing of modern combat aircraft
  • Challenges and tools
  • FQ Envelope Expansion
  • MIL-STD-1797 and frequency based FQ criteria
  • Evaluation Maneuvers and examples
  • High AoA FQ testing
  • ITPS training approach

The event is open free of charge to SETP and SFTE members of the Canadian chapters.

The event will be capped by a Gala Dinner and Graduation Event featuring Keynote Speaker Brian Binnie and the presentation of diplomas to this year’s graduating classes of test pilots and flight test engineers.
