Brake anti-locking systems (ABS) in aviation are mostly used as an aid systems in big aviation (cargo planes, passenger liner planes) both civilian and military. Their goals are to improve safety by avoiding wheels slip on the landing surface and to reduce wear of wheels and tyres. Nowadays more of the smaller aircrafts are being equipped with the ABS systems because the cost of operation is compared to the income they provide. This paper is an extension of the previous work by the author on design and tests of the brake systems covering the topic of the ABS system mounted to the actual airplane during the runway testing. The methodology of tests was created to match real ABS system operation and to test most of extreme situations accordingly. Test campaign consisted of number of taxiing and landing scenarios. The tests were performed in order to prove efficiency and operation of the aviation ABS system in a mid-sized airplane according to the initial requirements and results of the laboratory tests. Obtained results can be used as a part of the certification process and as data for future optimization of test methodology and/or the system itself.
