Abstract : New tentative criteria have been developed for airplanes with relaxed static longitudinal stability based on approach and landing ground simulation, but augmented by the available flight test data. It is shown that a criterion based on just time-to-double amplitude is invalid, and other elements in the pitch attitude transfer function must be included. Criteria based on both closed-loop frequency response and airplane parameters (open-loop) are developed. This report covers the results obtained in one of a series of Air Force programs to update MIL-F-8785, 'Flying Qualities of Piloted Airplanes'.
