Abstract : The modal structure was first examined to gain insight into the dynamics of the basic STOL aircraft in landing approach. The basic STOL airframe together with the control aspect of the pilot activities was then briefly analyzed, including a brief treatment of the thrust-control inner loop. The guidance aspect was then briefly examined and formulae for generating coordinated control commands derived. Recommended further work was described to complete the study. (Author)
