AbstractCertification of an Aircraft necessitates ample instrumentation equipment to get all the data needed. The Flight Test Instrumentation System for the Indonesian Aircraft CN 235 (Fig. 1) does not consist only of the necessary data acquisition and evaluation systems, but includes moreover all the subsystems which are needed in flight testing like airborne- and ground-calibration systems, video and camera-installations etc. The Mobile Ground Station is housed in 14 shelters including a power-station and can be seen as a selfsupporting system. Design and procurement by DFVLR assisted by Indonesian engineers as well as assistance through DFVLR in Indonesia was a first leading project in the course of the establishment of an Indonesian Flight Mechanics Laboratory FML. After service in Type Certification of the CN 235 the Flight Test Instrumentation System described will have a wide application range for future projects. To get a staff of engineers scilled in the art of flight-testing a training program for 10 Indonesian engineers was conducted by DFVLR, so that there are experts to operate the system in Indonesia. Since 1984 the Flight Test Instrumentation System is in use in Bandung or Jakarta resp.
