The dynamic response of conventional and VTOL aircraft with varying flight velocity is investigated. It is assumed that the dynamic motions of aircraft may be described by linear differential equations whose coefficients stability derivatives are functions of flight velocity, and therefore vary with time. Primary emphasis is placed on the evaluation of the general nature of the vehicle response and its departure from frozen system constant coefficients characteristics.
