DETERM ..INATION O P FLYING QUALITIES
The requirements for satisfactory flying qualities
of airplanes have been given in reference 1 under three
main headings, namely:
I. Requirements for Longitudinal Stability and
II. Requirements for Lateral Stability and Control
III. Stalling Characteristics
The present paper follows the outline of reference 1 and
each of the flying-quality requirements is quoted directly.
I. Requirements for Longitudinal Stability and Control
I-A: Characteristics of uncontrolled longitudinal
"W0en elevator control is deflected and released
quickly, the subsequent variation of.normal accele-
ration and elevator angle should have completely dis-
appeared after one cycle."
Here’s what’s next.
