The solution of problems of flight dynamics requires the aerodynamic forces, which are called into play, to be expressed in a suitable form. In this context a suitable form is one which adequately reflects the nature of the motion being considered and is, at the same time, convenient for the solution of the equations of motion. In the opening sections of this paper formulation in terms of aerodynamic derivatives, and generalizations thereof, are considered. There follows a brief discussion in broad and simple physical terms of how the various motion variables give rise to forces and moments, which within a linearized framework are expressible as force or moment derivatives, specifically for an aeroplane.
