Abstract:

This Research Technical Memorandum presents suggestions for a specification on flying and handling qualities requirements for subsonic VSTOL aircraft. In addition to including the ideas of many others, the authors have incorporated two basic suggestions 1 the use of a pilot rating system since the ultimate measures of handling qualities are determined by the pilot and 2 the use of servo-analysis techniques and terms to define quantitative requirements. There are no statistical or quantitative data available to verify the stated requirements in some cases however, the requirements are based on many different VSTOL research aircraft funded by the U. S. Army and flown by U. S. Army pilots.
