Abstract:

An analytical study was conducted to determine the feasibility of five approaches to develop an airplane stall deterrent device. For three approaches the static longitudinal stability and control characteristics of a typical light single-engine and twin-engine airplane were obtained and modified with each stall deterrent device. These characteristics were compared to those of an ideal stall deterrent airplane. The five approaches to stall deterrence were the use of a segmented elevator, an auxiliary horizontal tail, a trim tab on the horizontal tail surface, an auxiliary surface to deploy a spoiler on the horizontal tail, and changes in airplane design.
