Abstract : The report presents an evaluation of answers to a questionnaire received from aircraft manufacturers and laboratories in several NATO countries. Topics treated are: the state-of-the-art of transfer function development for vertical and lateral gust response, take-off and landing structural response, responses to control surface input; the interaction of handling qualities, stability, control on structural load and the development status of gust alleviation devices and stability augmentation devices; and pilot characterization.
