Flight Test Program management is typically proposed when a complex system is being ordered, or if an order contains items for which significant development effort is required. Other situations requiring Flight Test Program Management include when a contract demands above normal qualification testing, when specific deliverable documentation is required, or if the customer requires regular status reports.

Curtiss-Wright has a rigorous project management methodology in place, called ‘Project Path', to ensure that every project is delivered on time and within budget. The Project Path system is a proven milestone-driven methodology in aerospace applications. It features an embedded quality process to ensure that projects are managed successfully at every stage. An overview of the Project Path stages and their outputs is shown below.
