AIR VEHICLE FLIGHT PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
|Publication Date:||13 March 2000|
This Standard Practice Aeronautical Design Standard specifies the flight performance data required to document the characteristics and capabilities of an air vehicle. It is the purpose of this standard to provide a clear and complete documentation of the air vehicle flight performance at a level of detail which is consistent with the current stage of design/development of the aircraft. The data requirements are divided into three levels: Level I, Level II, and Level III. LeveL I (the minimum requirement) addresses the level of detail which would be available during the late conceptual design or early preliminary design stage of the air vehicle. Level II addresses the level of detail which would be available during the late preliminary design or early detailed design stage. Level III addresses the level of detail which would be available during the late detailed design or flight test stage. Each level is intended to be consistent with the corresponding level in ADS-10C-SP, Air Vehicle Technical Description Selected sections of this standard may be added to or deleted. This standard is intended to prescribe a minimum quality of documentation at each Level.
This Standard Practice Aeronautical Design Standard is a communications tool. It provides a standard set of the data requirements to provide documentation of air vehicle flight performance. This standard contains a set of requirements designed to be tailored for each contract by the contracting agency. The tailoring process intended for this standard is the deletion of non-applicable requirements.
