Functional Check Flights

Over the last few years, several accidents or serious incidents have occurred during functional check flights on transport aircraft. One of the reasons is that, today, no detailed procedures are published for the various manoeuvres that may be performed during these flights. The target of this book is to fill this gap.

The first part includes general information for the preparation and the execution of the flight.The thirty chapters of the second part explain the techniques that should be employed for a safe and efficient execution of all the possible checks that may be encountered during aircraft maintenance check flights.

Finally, some specific information is added to assist Airbus operators to carry out these same checks on Airbus Fly-By-Wire aircraft.
