The main goal is to evaluate the BTLS estimator and the tracking approach to monitor the time-varying dynamical behaviour of a system, in this case an aircraft, for which the poles have a typical evolution in time as shown in Fig. main motivation for considering a continuous change of aircraft dynamics originates from new research ideas on flight flutter testing, where aircraft Cited by: Flight Testing of Homebuilt Aircraft. The purpose of the flight was to conduct flutter testing of the prototype RV-4 to ten percent beyond Vne. It was necessary to overspeed the fixed pitch wood propeller somewhat to achieve the high air speed required for the test. Slight differences in wing construction, a different method of coupling.

The test program plan included a series of high-speed taxis down the runway leading to "land backs" or very short flights of just a few seconds as suggested by Vaughan Askue in "Flight Testing Homebuilt Aircraft" (Askue, ). The EAA Flight Advisor strongly disagreed with these procedures and suggested simply a few high-speed taxis, including. (b) post-flight data analysis, including signal process­ ing, stability estimation, and system identification; (c) new flutter prediction methods, incorporating non-linear issues in order to reduce the flutter test matrix [3]. The flutter margin concept [4] has been used as a valuable tool to predict the flight flutter .

The flight test phase accomplishes two major tasks: 1.
