Navaid Calibrations

Mon Jan 08, 2018 4:15 pm

So, at the airport we're working from, calibration is taking place after installation of DVOR/DME and ILS.

This lead me to think about what is going on inside that plane. Anyone who could speak out of experience?

How do they measure the flight path against other references, and when they make adjustments to the electronics, what do they actually do?

This may not be quite the level of technical analysis you're looking for, but here are two articles about the FAA Flight Check teams:
