Abstract : The results of an aircraft flying qualities research program sponsored by the Naval Air Systems Command are presented. For a simulated carrier approach task, numerical pilot ratings and specific comments were obtained from Navy test pilots. The parameters evaluated were the engine response, flight path stability, tail lift, and direct lift control. Data are presented in the form of pilot opinion maps of the parameters, tabulated configuration ratings, and pilot comments. (Author)
