Abstract : This report contains methodology for predicting stability and control characteristics of conceptual flight vehicles. The methodology presented is a combination of existing methodology, modified existing methodology, and newly developed methodology. The methodology is divided into three main sections: 1) Aerodynamics of Longitudinal stability coefficients, 2) Lateral Stability coefficients, and 3) Static and Dynamic Stability Analysis. Keywords: Aerodynamics, Trim drag.
