Abstract:

Analytic and probabilistic descriptions of low-altitude mean wind and turbulence have been investigated and a description selected. The effects of wind and turbulence on aerodynamics and aircraft motion have been analyzed. A model of wind and turbulence, suitable for the certification of landing and approach guidance and control systems by flight simulations, has been developed, and consideration has been given to implementation.
