Test Flight Operations
Test and demonstration flight operations are a big part of what we do. After all, it's part of our name! We accomplish a wide variety of test-ops missions including: Post-maintenance, post-conversion, Pre-buy, Acceptance/Delivery, Lease Return, Observations, Experimental Ops, and Certification/STC testing and Demonstration. Learn more below.
Passenger-to-Freighter (PTF) or VIP
Jet Test performs dozens of post-conversion flight checks annually on all the current PTF platforms: B737-CL/NG, B757, B767. We are currently preparing for the A320/21 and B777 PTF as soon as they are available and are familiar with the following variants: Precision (PCF), AEI, Pemco, IAI, Boeing (BCF).
Acceptance / Return
Demo or Observer Services
Jet Test can represent either party (Lessor or Lessee) in conducting technical acceptance flights using manufacturer, company, or our own check criteria. We are adept at identifying problems and narrowing down the root cause. We can also provide an observer to act as a neutral 3rd party during a contractually mandated operator demo.
Certification / STC
Flight Test Services
From Major Modifications like PTF or VIP conversions to EFIS, ADS-B, or Flat Panel avionics upgrades, Jet Test has the experience to develop and execute in the structured test flight environment. We've handled complex tasks like arial oil-spill dispersant system tests and analogue to digital flight guidance transitions. Our flight testing team has unparalleled experience with Operational Flight Test.
