Roughness Investigation and Repair
Pilot or passenger complaints produce many of APR’s roughness investigation projects. However, what may seem rough to one pilot is not considered rough by another. It is a subjective experience. APR has the technology to remove the guessing game from this problem.
On the left are two plots that identify a series of roughness events before and after simulated repairs. Before repairs, this runway consistently caused pilot and passenger complaints. The “After Repairs” plot illustrates APR’s optimized repair technique being developed and tested using aircraft simulation. As you can see, the aircraft response was greatly improved and pilot complaints stopped.
