The report presents a summary of analysis methods and digital computer programs developed for low cost simulation of aircraft dynamics and parametric studies of design parameters. The equations and programs presented are completely checked, and approximations, when they are involved, are specifically described. Complete digital programs for longitudinal dynamics, including air turbulence effects, propeller effects, configuration change effects etc., three axis controlled six degree of freedom motion and spin simulation are presented. A full description of the governing equations is given. Programs are written in the DICTATOR II language and a description of the DICTATOR II language is also presented. The DICTATOR language is a programming software system designed especially to expedite solution of engineering and scientific problems on digital computers. It can be learned in about 2 hours, and its use, on low cost computers, makes it possible for almost anyone to effectively use a computer for even the most commonplace problems. To demonstrate such use, a chapter on the topic of digital programming is included in the report.
