OSHKOSH, WIS. – Orders are now being accepted for the Experimental Aircraft Association’s new Flight Test Manual, which brings the processes and procedures of professional flight testing to the amateur-built aircraft community. The 47-page manual is a comprehensive program for amateur-built aircraft flight testing. It includes outlines for each essential test point, as well as a booklet of 19 test cards that can be carried in the aircraft for quick reference and data collection while in flight. Those test cards are similar to those used by professional civilian and military test pilots, and are an exclusive resource for amateur-built aircraft pilots using the EAA manual. The manual is available online for $17.95 for EAA members and $22.95 for nonmembers.
