The Flight Path Reconstruction (FPR) techniques are performed to verify the data compatibility check and post-flight. This is often achieved by calibrating the onboard sensors such as inertial and airdata sensors. In this paper, the limitations of FPR techniques in terms of Maximum Likelihood Estimation (MLE) and Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) and Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) have been reported. To demonstrate the FPR and sensor calibration, kinematic trajectory simulations with wind box type maneuvers have been performed. It is also shown as how a kinematic simulation is valid for the studies carried out in this work.
