RW and FW P&FQ

During the last two weeks NTPS held its Introduction to Performance and Flying Qualities (P&FQ) Testing Short Courses for fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft. Two diverse classes totaling 20 students that represented 9 different Nations with both military and industry experience attended the Courses.

These Short Courses are a great way to get initial exposure to flight testing and count towards a Graduate Certificate or a Master's Degree.

The next available fixed-wing introductory P&FQ testing short course takes place this November. The next available rotary-wing introductory P&FQ testing short course is offered next May 2023. If interested in taking either Course, sign up soon on our website as spots are limited, and the classes fill up quickly.

Come learn at NTPS, the World’s Test Pilot School!

T&E 4203 14 CFR Part 23/25/27/29 Avionics Certification Flight Testing Module

NTPS professional course students traveled to Las Vegas (NV) last week to fly the Airbus A320 simulator as part of the T&E 4203 14 CFR Part 23/25/27/29 Avionics Certification Flight Testing module. Students worked in teams to write test plans and test cards which they executed during two data flights. The students will complete the module by compiling their data into a test report and present oral briefings on their findings.
