Title: Use of global positioning system velocity outputs for determining airspeed measurement error
Authors: Gratton, GB
Keywords: GPS
Calibration
Airspeed
Pitot-static
Publication Date: 2007

Citation: Aeronautical Journal. 111 (1120) 381-388
Abstract: Several methods have been derived since the advent of GPS (Global Positioning System) receivers in aircraft cockpits by which these receivers may be used to calibrate these aircraft’s other instrumentation; in particular the pitot-static system. This paper presents the four most suitable methods, two of which have been developed by the author. These methods are shown with a common symbology, and their strengths, weaknesses, analysis and operational use are compared.
