A simulator study of some longitudinal stability and control problems of a piloted aircraft in flights to extreme altitude and high speed

One of 5,164 reports in the series: NACA Research Memorandums available on this site.

Description

Report presenting a brief study utilizing pilots to fly a simulator of some longitudinal stability and control problems of an assumed aircraft capable of flights to altitudes essentially out of the atmosphere. The results show that more than the inherent longitudinal damping of the aircraft is necessary to affect a safe flight, particularly during entry into the atmosphere. Results regarding some preliminary considerations, entry, and control in ascent and the ballistics trajectory are provided.

National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics Collection

The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) was a U.S. federal agency founded on March 3, 1915 to undertake, promote, and institutionalize aeronautical research. On October 1, 1958 the agency was dissolved, and its assets and personnel transferred to the newly created National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
