Abstract : A man-airframe disturbance sensitivity model has been postulated. The existence of optimum pilot chosen compensation in the multiloop compensatory mode is shown to result in minimum closed loop sensitivity to pilot induced stick input errors. Based on existing fixed base simulator data it is shown that an optimum ratio exists for blended feedback control of pitch rate and normal acceleration. (Author)
