This table is representative of the data collection for ALL climb tests. "PA1" and "PA2" are the pressure altitude limits (Kollsman window set to 29.92 in. Hg) for each climb block - the "Diff" is 1000 ft. for each. "Mid" is the mid-point altitude, at which the "OAT" (in deg. F) is taken. The "DA" is the density altitude of the midpoint, based on the "OAT". "Vt" is the True Airspeed, based on the "DA" and the indicated Airspeed, "Vi". The "Time" is the measured time (in seconds) to climb from "PA1" to "PA2", and "ROC" is the calculated Rate of Climb based on that time. The "FPA" is the flight path angle (in degrees) for that altitude block.
The only two measured columns are the "OAT" and the "Time" - the rest are either defined or calculated. "Time" is measured on the way up, and "OAT" is measured on the way down at the midpoint altitude. I stabilize at this altitude for one minute before taking the measurement.

I generate a table like this for airspeeds from 80 mph to 130 mph, at weights and CG's as defined in Tenth Flight Test.
It usually takes two or three flights to run through the six indicated speeds at each CG/Weight level. On the first flight at each level, I stabilize at 3500 ft. pressure altitude on the way down and perform stall/accelerated stall tests. This table is representative of the data collected.
|Bank Angle (degrees)||Airspeed (mph)|
All Climb/Stall data will be reduced and graphed after the flights are complete.
|Throttle:||2000 RPM - descend to pattern altitude|
