Abstract : Dynamics is concerned with the time history of the motion of physical systems. An aircraft is such a system, and its dynamic stability behavior can be predicted through mathematical analysis of the aircraft's equations of motion and verified through flight test. During this study of aircraft dynamics, the solutions to both first order and second order systems will be of interest, and several important descriptive parameters will be used to define the dynamic response of either a first or a second order system.
