Abstract : A systematic investigation was conducted of STOL transport terminal area lateral control characteristics to identify the significant considerations and establish appropriate lateral control criteria. The investigation consisted of an analysis of applicable existing data and a moving-base flight simulator test program using the NASA Ames Research Center S-16 Moving Cab Transport Simulator. The flight simulator program covered a wide range of vehicle aerodynamic and physical characteristics representative of practical STOL transports ranging in size from 25,000 to 130,000 pounds.
