This technical report presents the results of a limited evaluation of predicting pilot opinion of aircraft handling qualities in the landing phase of flight using the control anticipation parameter CAP and bandwidth criteria. The objective of this flight-test was to evaluate the validity of predicting pilot opinion using the CAP and bandwidth criteria. The CAP was defined as in MIL-STD-1797A, Flying Qualities of Piloted Aircrafl. The bandwidth criterion used the current definition in MIL-STD- 1 797A along with a new dropback criterion. Actual pilot opinion was obtained by flying the Variable-Stability In-Flight Simulator Test Aircraft VISTA NF- 1 6D in the approach and landing phase of flight. Testing was requested by the Flight Dynamics Laboratory, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, and was conducted under the authority of the Commandant, USAF Test Pilot School. The results of this test will be used to revise the short-term pitch response requirements in MIL-STD- 1 797B. This flight-test complemented research done by the Flight Dynamics Laboratory, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio WLFIGC, in predicting pilot opinion during the landing phase of flight
