Abstract:

Simplified mathematical models for both closed loop and open loop FA-18 flight dynamics are presented. In each case a description of the model is given followed by a comparison of results produced with those published in the literature. Agreement is very good for the longitudinal dynamics and reasonable for the lateral dynamics. Keywords PitchMotion Yaw Computerized simulation Aerodynamic characteristics.
