Abstract : The report presents a description of the X-22A fixed-base ground simulator facility. The simulation will be used in conjunction with the X-22A V/STOL aircraft which is a unique research tool used in performing flying qualities research. The simulator duplicates the X-22A aircraft and its systems for varying pertinent pitch, roll, yaw and thrust stability derivatives. A high-speed process control digital computer is used to solve the X-22A equations of motion including the nonlinear characteristics associated with transition, and provides the signals for the displays and variable stability system. The X-22A ground simulator is a facility that consists of an air conditioned flight simulation cockpit and a mobile van. (Modified author abstract)
