Abstract : The purpose of the study was to determine those portions of the various aircraft handling qualities specifications which were inadequate or overly restrictive. The collected comments illustrate the difficulty of collecting information from design or certification authorities which quantifies flying qualities. Difficulties arise because the information needed to compare an early aircraft design with a current specification is often not available; also there is a reluctance to publicize information which might show a particular aircraft in a bad light. The need for further research is shown.
