Aeronautix offers lab test, aircraft ground test and flight test support including test plan development, test conduct / FAA test witness personnel, data acquisition, data post-processing, test report development, FAA conformity inspections and all necessary FAA data approvals. Aeronautix can provide the instrumentation and data acquisition systems necessary for a multitude of test efforts. The types of testing we regularly support include:

  • lab testing – structural stress / strain measurement, material flammability substantiation, fireproof / resistance determination, environmental qualification (DO-160), electrical / avionics systems functional, environmental control systems functional, propulsion systems functional
  • aircraft ground testing – ground vibration, electrical / avionics systems functional, EMI / RFI susceptibility, environmental control systems functional, temperature surveys, human factors evaluation, propulsion systems functional
  • aircraft flight testing – performance (takeoff, climb, cruise, landing) determination, handling qualities (stability and control) evaluation, electrical / avionics systems functional, environmental control systems functional, propulsion systems functional
