Flight evaluation of communication-navigation-identification antennas installed on new types of aircraft is required to confirm model measurements. The paper reviews the parameters involved in such an evaluation under both standard and nonstandard propagation conditions. The predicted signal level across the receiver terminals connected to an isotropic antenna is employed as the standard of comparison with the scale-model antenna patterns. The procedures employed and the results obtained are briefly discussed.
