Abstract:

The recommendations, which are necessarily tentative, particularly as regards their application to large aircraft, are based in some respects on requirements for U. S. Military helicopters, but considerable use has been made of the results of flight assessments of handling qualities of a number of VSTOL research aircraft. To improve their validity, they should be kept under continual review by critical, systematic comparison with the accepted handling qualities of as many new VSTOL aircraft as possible.
