The general objectives of this simulation were to, evaluate the tentative airworthiness criteria and demonstrations proposed by the SSDWG. The following subject priorities were agreed upon by the Working Group 1 Flare and landing 2 Flight path response 3 Cross coupling 4 Safety margins 5 Continued approach with an engine failure 6 Flight path control power and 7 Limiting flight conditions. The objectives were addressed using a single basic powered-lift airplane model which simultaneously just met as many of the proposed SSDWG criteria as possible. The characteristics of the model were then varied to focus on specific areas of interest. This volume begins with a description of the elements involved in the simulation. The results are then presented in detail. Included are the aspects of longitudinal flight pathflight reference control the limiting flight conditions and safety margins and the problems connected with an engine failure during the approach.
