Abstract : The report presents criteria on handling qualities for VTOL and STOL aircraft. Included with each criterion is a discussion pointing out the pilot's reasons for including a particular handling quality feature. The criteria are based on results of tests using piloted ground-based simulators, variable stability aircraft, particular models of VTOL and STOL aircraft, and variable stability helicopters.
