Flight Test of Gliders and Powered GlidersTechnical Soaring, 2006Co-Authors: Ronald BlumeAbstract:
For the certification of an aircraft, it has to be shown, that it complies with all parts of the Airworthiness Code (e.g. CS 22 or JAR-22 in the case of gliders and powered gliders). The subparts ‘Flight’, ‘Design and Construction’, ‘Operating Limitations and Information’ as well as the Flight Manual have to be assessed by pilots, to allow a statement about the compliance with the relevant paragraphs. For the subpart ‘Flight’, test flights have to be carried out to show the compliance and to verify the relevant parameters of the pilot operating handbook. Example of necessary flight test procedures and instruments will be presented and samples of retrieved data and sources of error will be shown.

Deriving an acceptable level of reusable launch vehicle flightworthinessAIP Conference Proceedings, 2000Co-Authors: René J. ReyAbstract:
Second-generation reusable launch vehicles (RLVs) will become catalysts for the codification of RLV-specific flightworthiness standards—their potential to evolve into globe spanning space transportation systems operating on a daily basis is immeasurable. To enable these operationally prevalent RLVs to achieve their maximum potential, they will need to function within the confines of an international regulatory framework, and an established Airworthiness Code as provided by Annex 8 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation. Hence, certification and licensing standards should not be tailored to accommodate the uniqueness of each RLV design concept, as proposed by some of today’s hopeful developers and operators. Rather, an RLV design that will achieve aircraft-like operations without compromising aircraft safety standards should be established as the benchmark upon which the legal regime for follow-on systems will be based.

Recent European UAV Rule-Making Initiatives Reflections, lessons learned from IAI-Malat ParticipationInfotech@Aerospace, 2005Co-Authors: Michael AlloucheAbstract:
A number of European UAV Rule-Making Initiatives have been recently taking place in order to set up draft policies and criteria regarding UAV Airworthiness and Airspace Integration. IAI-Malat, as a leading UAV manufacturer having accumulated, in actual operations, more than 250, 000 flight hours in its entire fleet, has taken an active part in these processes. The author of this paper was himself an active member of related activities, bringing the UAV Industry perspective and inputs to the setting of UAV Certification Policy and Criteria. This paper first provide a background on IAI-Malat experience and activities in the field of UAV Airworthiness and Airspace Integration, illustrated by the highlights of recent IAI UAV flight & Airworthiness approval processes. It then outlines some most recent European initiatives where IAI-Malat took an active part, namely: USICO (Uav Safety Issues for Civil Operations), an European Commission Funded Project led by a consortium of 10 organizations (Industry and Research Institutions) JAA-EuroControl Taskforce (which took place in parallel interaction with USICO) that was concluded by a consensual Industry / Civil Aviation Authorities Concept Document for future Civil UAV regulations in Europe French MoD DGA USAR Working Group, leading to an entire UAV System Airworthiness Code (“UAV System Airworthiness Requirements”). This paper concludes with some reflections and lessons learned from IAI-Malat participation, as viewed from an UAV manufacturer’s perspective.
