Abstract:

The purpose of this document is to provide handling qualities investigators with readily usable data on several representative contemporary aircraft. Included are those data required to obtain transfer functions relating the aircrafts response to control inputs. An analytical description of the aircrafts stability augmentor is also given. For those aircraft for which complete information was available, the following summarizes the contents and presentation 1 Flight conditions for which computations are made including a Configuration e.g., fuel load, flaps, gear, etc., and b Machaltitude combinations 2 General arrangement 3 Control system description 4 Stability augmentation description 5 Tabulations andor plots of non- dimensional stability derivatives for trimmed flight 6 Dimensional, mass, and flight condition parameters 7 Dimensional stability derivatives 8 Transfer functions for control inputs 9 Selected handling qualities parameters and 10 Data sources.
