Flight Test Matrix

A comprehensive test plan was developed that encompassed a variety of required maneuvers with many permutations. The planned maneuvers would allow the end user to build and/or verify various aerodynamic, performance, and handling models for the aircraft. These maneuvers were conducted using the Flight Testing Automation Tool outlined in Dantsker, Yu, Vahora, and Caccamo 2019. The aircraft autonomously flew these manuevers under the direction a flight coordinator while being monitored by a safety pilot.
