"CHAPTER 10 STANDARD MISSION PROFILES 10.1 INTRODUCTION From the beginning to the end of the flight test process, the flight test team must have a working knowledge of the mission and mission profiles against which the aircraft isto be evaluated. This knowledge at the start of the program enables the team to design the test program to concentrate on the mission specific altitudes, airspeeds, loadings, or other requirements which are representative of the mission(s).The preceding chapters discuss in detail the testing required to evaluate specific performance characteristics. The final step for the flight test team is to assimilate all the performance data and determine if the aircraft can perform the required mission(s). This chapter looks at putting all of the performance characteristics together to enable the flight test team to evaluate an aircraft against a given mission profile (Figure 10.1)."
