Abstract : Simplified mathematical models for both closed loop and open loop F/A-18 flight dynamics are presented. In each case a description of the model is given followed by a comparison of results produced with those published in the literature. Agreement is very good for the longitudinal dynamics and reasonable for the lateral dynamics. Keywords: Pitch(Motion); Yaw; Computerized simulation; Aerodynamic characteristics.
