Pagination or Media Count:
The criteria, design, installation and flight calibration of a variable drag system are discussed. The system allows for variable LD characteristics in the variable stability T-33 airplane. With this system in the special T-33, the airplane will be used to investigate the interactions between handling qualities and many drag characteristics including very low LD and shapes of LD curve for high LD ratios.
