Abstract:

A performance control system PCS that allows direct pilot control of aircraft bank angle and vertical speed has been developed and flight tested in a twin-engine general aviation aircraft. The control-response relationships are discussed for both the conventional controls and the PCS. The reduction of control authority with the PCS and the resulting flying qualities are presented.
