43-207 - Correlation, Operation, Design, and Modification of Turbofan/Jet Engine Test Cells

Date Issued
December 26, 2002
Responsible Office
Provides guidance regarding test cell correlation procedures for test cells used for in-service acceptance testing of turbofan and turbojet engines. This AC discusses the effects of the design, operation, and modification of a test cell and engine test hardware on engine performance. The AC also provides guidance on conducting, evaluating, and maintaining test cell correlation. Like all advisory material, this AC is not in itself mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issues it to describe an acceptable means, but not the only means, for correlating and maintaining a satisfactory correlation status of a test cell.
