Abstract : The report compares the flying qualities of the A-7D light attack airplane with the major flying qualities items of the Military Specification MIL-F-8785B(ASG). The comparison is based primarily on theoretical data supplemented as required by flight test data. The theoretical data is obtained from the contractor's report number 2-53320/8R-8089, dated 15 January 1968. The A-7D is aerodynamically the same as the A-7A; therefore, the A-7D estimated flying qualities are based on data obtained from flight tests of the A-7A airplane and A-7A model tests in the contractor's wind tunnel.
