Abstract:

The results of a study to determine the dynamic response criteria for VSTOL aircraft simulator trainers are presented. The fundamentals of VSTOL dynamics, control, and simulation within the various VSTOL flight regimes are described. Difficulties likely to be encountered in developing an adequate VSTOL aircraft simulation are also presented. Methods and procedures for determining the accuracy to which specific dynamic response parameters must be simulated are presented, and based upon these, simulation tolerances are developed for each significant handling qualities parameter in each flight regime. The dynamic attributes of the pilot-aircraft combination with regard to each specific parameter are discussed. A detailed description of various VSTOL aircraft equations of motion, transfer functions, and modes of motion is included and the practical limitations of various methods and procedures for programming the equations of motion for piloted flight simulation purposes are discussed.
