Abstract:

Direct lift control DLC is a system which produces lift forces in the direction the pilot desires to move the airplane without significant pitching moment. DLC enhances precision longitudinal maneuvering capability by providing a change in altitude or rate of climb without a change in pitch attitude and without the initial acceleration reversal, delay in lift build-up, and excessive pitch rate overshoot associated with conventional elevator control. Operation of DLC in approach and landing is discussed. Author
