Seager, Donald B. (1948) Operational flight testing. Engineer's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-12162008-153900
Operational data are those which are used in routine flights to indicate the weight of payload and fuel that can safely be carried. Therefore, operational data consist of information on take-off, climb, cruise, descent, and landing.
Airplanes which make the most use of this type of information at present are long range, propeller driven transports and bombers; the material presented on the following pages is specifically for use with this general type of aircraft.
Methods of reducing take-off tests, climb tests, and of obtaining high speed cruise control are presented in the body of the thesis.
