Fixed base and piloted simulation studies were conducted to evaluate control systems for a STOL tactical transport equipped with vectored thrust. Unaugmented aircraft flying qualities were found to be unacceptable. However, an augmented control system configuration was found to give excellent flying qualities and satisfactory behavior following engine or control system component failure. The present flying qualities standard for STOL aircraft, MIL-F-83300, was reviewed and several changes are suggested.
