An investigation was made of the static and dynamic longitudinal stability of a Cessna 310H aircraft. Stick-fixed and stick-free neutral points were determined for both the cruise and approach configurations. Stick-fixed and stick-free maneuver points were determined for the cruise configuration. Values of the neutral points and maneuver points were also obtained from a theoretical analysis for comparison purposes. The longitudinal long period, or phugoid, mode was investigated for the stick-fixed and stick-free cases and for widely separated center of gravity locations.
