Short summary
In the presented paper, authors introduced examples of continuous wavelet analysis of load spectra recorded with MEMS gyroscopes during the flight testing. The analysis could be applied for aeroplane load analysis during the flight based on data from simple recorder unit. The other potential application of this method would be academic education. The courses of data analysis, handling qualities or flight testing seem to be still uncommon in aerospace engineering studies.
