Abstract : A brief handling assessment was made of the Beagle Bulldog at a representative training loading. The overall impression of the aircraft was most favourable, and it is considered well suited to the trainer role. No handling problems were encountered and the characteristics were even better than those of the Pup 150. The aircraft was easy to fly while providing scope to achieve precision. Ground handling was excellent, pedal forces being lighter than on the Pup. Stability and control were good about all axes. Stalling tests showed that the controls were effective throughout and recovery was prompt. The aircraft could be made to spin more easily than the Pup and the rate of rotation, though fast, was acceptable in view of the stable nature of the spin. Aerobatics were if anything better than on the Pup due to the clear view canopy, constant speed propeller and larger rudder. Recommendations are made for improving the cockpit layout. (Author)
