Abstract:

The study was conducted to validate military specification MIL-F- 8785BASG, Flying Qualities of Piloted Airplanes, dated 7 August 1969, Interim Amendment-1 USAF, dated 31 March 1971, by performing a detail comparison of its requirements with the known characteristics of the Lockheed C- 5A and pilot comments on them. The comparison was based primarily on existing flight test data supplemented by analytical data as required for this evaluation process. Paragraph by paragraph validations of discrepancies are noted, resolution attempted if necessary, and any recommendations given. In addition, recommendations are made enumerating experimental and analytical investigations beyond the scope of this study which will provide data for further validation and updating of the requirements.
