Abstract:

A set of aircraft maneuvers has been developed to augment evaluation maneuvers used currently by the flying qualities and flight test communities. These maneuvers extend evaluation to full aircraft dynamics throughout the aircraft flight envelope. As a result, a tie has been established between operational use and design parameters without losing control of the aircraft evaluation process. Twenty maneuvers are described as an initial set to examine primarily high-angle-of attack conditions. Perhaps as important as the maneuvers themselves is the method used to select them. These maneuvers will allow direct measurement of flying qualities throughout the flight envelope instead of merely comparing parameters to specification values.
