Abstract : A method for predicting aircraft pilot ratings which is applicable to control configured vehicles (CCV's) is developed based on aircraft performance and pilot workload. A discussion of this method of handling quality analysis, and a description of four random tracking pilot rating correlations developed using the method are presented in Volume I of the report. A literature survey classifying the most recent reports applicable to flying qualities is tabulated. (Modified author abstract)
