MIT Lincoln Laboratory
The mission of the Flight Test Facility is to support research and development programs at Lincoln Laboratory by providing unique airborne test bed platforms, state-of-the-art test facilities and expert integration and flight-test risk management solutions. The Flight Test Facility provides a method of validation with actual field collected data. Flight Test Facility Research aircraft are flown, maintained, and managed by a professional staff of pilots, certified maintenance mechanics and technicians, and administrative personnel. The Flight Test Facility's first priority is safety of flight. All flight operations are conducted by using procedures and equipment that meet or exceed all Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements. As a result of various past airborne testing programs, mission-specific integration procedures have been developed. These procedures and the Federal Aviation Regulations provide for safe and successful operations.
The Flight Test Facility was created to support early air-to-air collision avoidance research programs sponsored by the FAA. As the need for more extensive airborne testing increased, the Flight Test Facility has expanded to support a variety of Department of Defense, Homeland Security and FAA programs. The Flight Test Facility currently operates seven aircraft. The aircraft are experimentally certificated flying test beds ranging in size from a small general aviation Cessna to regional transport turboprops to large corporate jets. All aircraft maintenance, modifications and alterations are performed in accordance with the approved standards of a Part 145 Repair Station.
The Aircraft Maintenance Supervisor is responsible for the overall activities of the Part 145 repair station. The aircraft maintenance supervisor leads a staff of engineering specialists, avionics specialists, A&P mechanics, avionics technicians, and an aircraft parts supply manager and reports directly to the Flight Test Facility manager.
