|Does anyone have a modern detailed check list of what constitutes a proper Test Flight?
What to do, what to expect to find, what in particular to look out for during each maneuver?
If so, please post it here!
These can be so much fun to do as practice when you have time and altitude to burn over the LZ.
Not to mention that they should be standard practice after any repair or glider strip down.
Wills Wing used to publish them in their manuals.
An excellent example is from Page 72 to 73 in the Sport 167 Manual
but I recall a much more detailed and informative list being posted elsewhere at one time.
Using Wing Tufts to find the minimum sink speed of your glider (re adjusting your hang poing) in the Ultra Sport Manual Page 23 - 25.
