Abstract:

Simulation techniques are applied to the problems of determining aircraft handling qualities. Analog computers, fixed-base simulators, and various other ground machines are discussed. In particular, the theory and actual techniques of in-flight simulators of the variable-stability type are considered. The conclusion is drawn that the solution of the various problems of handling-qualities requirements and of control systems development requires the use of ground-based simulators and in-flight simulators as complementary tools.
