MetadataShow full item record
One of several fuel-saving operational concepts being investigated is the application of state-of-the-art hand-held calculators to serve as Flight Performance Adivosry Systems (FPAS). The principal function of a FPAS is to advise the pilot, based on the aircraft drag configuration, and gross weight, of the optimum flight performance parameters such as altitude and airspeed. The research reported herein is the development of the mathematical relationships for the effects of the wind on the aircraft optimum cruise performance. This thesis also describes the operating procedure of a Hewlett-Packard HP-41CV hand- held calculator programmed to serve as an F-4E and F-5E Flight Performance Advisory System. The objective of the FPAS is to recommend optimal flight profiles to achieve maximum fuel conservation. Because of the constraints imposed by HP-41CV memory size, the F-4E FPAS is comprised of three programs, and the F-5E is comprised of a single program.
