AUTOMATED TESTING OF FLIGHT INSTRUMENTS

The paper discusses present-day specifications for such flight instruments as altimeters, air-data computers, and air-speed indicators, which involve hundreds of calibration test points. Manual inspection of instruments of this type requires highly skilled personnel and a significant investment in terms of direct-labor man-hours. Several automated punched-tape-controlled systems for flight-instrument testing have been designed to reduce the costs of manual inspection.
