notated with a specific reading. Also a check mark (
) for satisfactory
performance, or a (X) for problem detected will be recorded and a short
statement entered in the remarks block of the Check Sheet.
g. An (O) prior to a check indicates a requirement if the
equipment is installed.
h. Maintenance Test Flight Check Sheet. The check sheet
contained in section V will be used for all test flights. When a test
flight is performed to determine if specific equipment or systems are
operating properly, completion of only that portion of the maintenance
test flight check sheet applicable to the specific equipment or systems
being tested is required. The aircraft test flight check sheets may be
locally reproduced. Continuation sheets may be used when necessary.
Items that prove to be unsatisfactory during the test flight and require
corrective action, shall be listed in the remarks block during flight and
transferred to DA Form 2408-13 immediately after termination of the
flight. The sheet will be attached to the DA Form 2408-13 upon
completion. After accumulation of two or more sheets, the data should
be reviewed to determine if trends are developing.
i. Free Air Temperature (FAT) and Outside Air Temperature
(OAT). For the purposes of this manual, free air temperature (FAT) is
to be considered the same as outside air temperature (OAT).
