Abstract:

A study was conducted to validate the 1969 military specification MIL-F-8785BASG, Flying Qualities of Piloted Airplanes, by performing a detailed comparison of its requirements with the known characteristics of the Northrop F-5 fighter and pilot comments on them. The comparison was based primarily on existing flight test data supplemented by analytical data. Validations or discrepancies are noted, resolution are attempted if necessary, and recommendations are given. Recommendations are also made for experimental and analytical investigations beyond the scope of this study which will further validate and update the requirements.
