The paper begins with a description of pilot control behavior in general. This is followed by emphasizing the essential features of pilot dynamics for closed-loop control of aircraft. The crossover model is presented as the simplest and most useful model for the majority of flying qualities analyses. Two models are developed in some detail a structural-isomorphic form which accounts for some human subsystems as well as the total input-output behavior and an algorithmic optimal control model which attempts to mimic the pilots total response only. Both full and divided attention conditions are treated.
