Resource title Piper-Aztec core meteorological in-situ measurements
Resource abstract This dataset contains in-situ meteorological measurements made onboard SAFIRE'S Piper-Aztec. These measurements are corrected for any effect induced by the aircraft (adiabatic heating due to compression on temperature and humidity sensors, "static defect" on pressure measurements, aircraft attitude on wind).

Calibration Wind is computed as the sum of air velocity/platform and velocity/ground. velocity/ground is given by the AIRINS navigation system. Air velocity/platform is given by dynamic pressure measurements on Nose boom. Calibration of the whole device was conducted during specific flights in 2011.
