Abstract : In August 1969, the Air Force and the Naval Air Systems Command adopted MIL-F-8785B(ASG) as the official Military Specification for Flying Qualities of Piloted Airplanes. Since that time effort has been sponsored by the Air Force to further improve the specification document and to increase its applicability in the development of future weapons systems. Results of a study performed by Calspan (formerly Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory) are presented in this report. Changes to the requirements of MIL-F-8785B(ASG) are suggested in the following areas: longitudinal maneuvering dynamics and control gradients, lateral-directional maneuvering dynamics and roll-sideslip coupling, atmospheric disturbance models, stall-spin characteristics, numerous miscellaneous corrections and changes, and additions to Background Information and Users Guide for MIL-F-8785B(ASG). Substantiation data for the recommended changes are also presented. (Author)
