Abstract:

The TIFS research airplane, the most advanced in-flight simulation vehicle yet developed, was designed to provide Total In-Flight Simulation. This capability depends on two basic features of the aircraft. First is the addition of an evaluation cockpit which is entirely separate from the normal airplanes safety pilots cockpit. Second is the control by a variable stability system of not only the moments about all three axes, but also the forces acting along the three axes. The report describes the TIFS airplane development during the period from November 1966 to June 1967. Author
