Book Synopsis
From the Landplane Preface >
...this Guide attempts to present the essentials of safe and technically sound flight testing to the E-AB pilot community in a practical, easy to understand way. The flight test topics deemed important to E-AB flight testing derive directly from NTSB recommendations and latest FAA guidance. They represent a mixture of test philosophy and how-to-do-it flight test techniques subjects with an overall emphasis on best practices and safe test conduct.

From the Landplane and Seaplane Preface >
… there are differences in test procedures between landplanes and seaplanes and they deal with their ground and water handling regardless of whether or not the airplanes under consideration are certificated or amateur-built. Given these facts, the safety considerations, risk management concepts, and flight test procedures presented in the original Landplane Edition of this handbook are relevant to seaplanes and are included in this Combined Landplane and Seaplane Edition.
