n the late 1940Ais and early 50Ais, planes flew higher and faster than anyone had dreamed possible. The jet age had arrived, and along with it came turbojet and rocket-powered aircraft capable of flying beyond the speed of sound. To assess these aircraft, the Air Research and Development Command developed a series of data reduction methods, and then compiled them in this Flight Test Engineering Manual. It served as a standard technical reference for the flight test engineers, program managers, pilots and support teams for many of the X-plane programs of the 1950s.
