Abstract

THE purpose of these notes is to discuss the part played by flight‐testing in some of the more topical branches of aerodynamic research and to describe some of the experimental methods used. The expression “flight testing” is used in preference to “full scale” on account of the extent to which full scale tests are now made in large wind tunnels.
