Example text

From NACA Rept. 700, 1940) Some Stinson measurements called for by the straw man requirements are definitely archaic and not a part of modern flying qualities. Very specific requirements were put on the time needed to change pitch attitude by 5 degrees; these were checked. Likewise, the need to limit adverse yaw in aileron rolls was dealt with by measuring maximum yawing acceleration and comparing it with rolling acceleration. The yaw value was supposed to be less than 20 percent of the roll value.

The demise of the authoritative MIL-F-8785 specification was part of a general trend away from rigid military specifications, with the intent of reducing extraneous and detailed management of industry by the government. ” Some horror stories brought out by the industry people did seem to make the point. The Military Standard is in fact ideal for “skunk works” operations; their managers don’t like more than general directions. However, the Military Standard seems to bring back the bad old days, the “straw man” requirements of the 1930s, established by pilots and engineers based on hunch and specific examples.

The goal of internationally agreed upon civil aircraft flying qualities standards is the responsibility of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), an arm of the United Nations. Annex 8 of the ICAO Standards deals with airworthiness, which includes adequate flying qualities (Stinton, 1996). Standards have also been adopted by individual countries for both civil and military machines. S. flying qualities specifications for military aircraft. Similar evolutions took place all over the world.
