Abstract : A precision instrument maneuver including holding heading straight and level, climbing and descending, and climbing and descending turns was flown in a fixedbase simulator for many different combinations of drag, lift and pitch characteristics. Two pilots evaluated the effects of these characteristics on their ability to perform an instrument landing approach in a single-pilot, highperformance airplane. (Author)
