Flying qualities databases and criteria have existed for fighter aircraft for several decades. However, there have been a lack of databases and criteria for active control transport aircraft. During the 1990s Boeing undertook a series of in-flight simulation experiments to generate a comprehensive longitudinal axis database for transport aircraft in the landing approach task. This database has subsequently been applied to the more established longitudinal flying qualities criteria flat were developed for fighter aircraft. This paper summarizes the results of these analyses and apprises the performance of the various criteria for application to active control transport aircraft.
