Contents Representative operations of V/STOL aircraft -- Control strategy and desired control characteristics -- Equations of motion for Hover and forward flight -- Longitudinal flying qualities in Hover -- Lateral-directional flying qualities in Hover -- Longitudinal flying qualities in forward flight -- Lateral-directional flying qualities in forward flight -- Response to wind and turbulence -- Control augmentation and cockpit displays -- Aircraft stability derivatives
Summary Annotation This text presents the principles of dynamics and control for vertical, short take-off landing (V/STOL) aircraft. It is the first book of its kind. It is intended for graduate students and professionals in aeronautics who have knowledge of linear systems analysis, aircraft static, dynamic stability, and control. The text begins with a discussion of V/STOL aircraft operations. Control strategies, equations of motion, longitudinal and lateral-directional flying qualities in both hover and forward flight, wind and turbulence responses, and control augmentation and cockpit displays are covered. Specific examples of the YAV-8B Harrier and XV-15 Tilt Rotor aircraft are used to illustrate actual V/STOL dynamic and control characteristics
