Abstract [en]

It is sometimes easily assumed that an experimental measurement will closely mimic the results from an associated theoretical model. The purpose of this project is to determine how close to a theoretical model - involving the component buildup method and the quadratic drag polar assumption - a Piper Archer II will perform in an actual test flight.

During the test flight, the Archer II showed a similar correlation between air speed and performance as the model. The actual performance numbers were, however, consistently lower than their theoretical counterpart.
