AER 716

Aircraft Stability and Control

The fundamentals of stick-fixed and stick-free static stability are considered. Manoeuvre margins and corresponding required control column forces are assessed. The dynamic stability of a given aircraft is evaluated through consideration of the equations of motion, and approximation methods presented for the longitudinal and lateral modes of transient motion. Longitudinal and lateral-directional responses to control applications are also considered.
