Abstract : Aircraft flying qualities are of fundamental importance to aircraft designers and flight control engineers. An integrated efficient software tool has been developed for the purpose of predicting the short term pitch response flying qualities of an aircraft. All short term pitch response criteria of MIL-STD-1797-A are included as well as some additional criteria found in the literature. A general pilot modeling tool is also provided with this package. This report covers how to install and use the software and contains reference material for developers who wish to expand its' capabilities. The software was developed as a MATLAB(TM) Toolbox and is designed to be very easy to use. It can greatly reduce the amount of time and effort involved in a handling qualities analysis.
