Work is ongoing to develop a web-based capability to support flight testing and mishap investigations. Fewer new aircraft are being procured today compared to aircraft procurement a couple decades ago. As the older members of the test force retire or change jobs, more pressure is placed on the more junior engineers to conduct the testing. Flight test training is accomplished at government and commercial test pilot schools, but after graduating the flight test engineers and pilots must primarily work with on-the-job training. One approach to improve flight test training support, currently being developed as part of a small business innovative research program, involves combining advanced technology programs associated with a physics-based analysis model structure and the World Wide Web. This paper discusses the results of the ongoing program to enhance and integrate an advanced simulation model structure with a collaborative network and with advanced microprocessors
