A STOL AIRWORTHINESS INVESTIGATION USING A SIMULATION OF AN AUGMENTOR WING TRANSPORT. VOLUME I. SUMMARY OF RESULTS AND AIRWORTHINESS IMPLICATIONS
A simulator study of STOL airworthiness criteria was conducted using a model of an augmentor wing transport. This study covered the approach, flare and landing, go-around, and takeoff phases of flight. The two volumes of this report document the results of that investigation. Volume One summarizes the results and discusses possible implications with regard to airworthiness criteria. The results provide a data base for future STOL airworthiness requirements and a preliminary indication of potential problem areas. The results are also compared to the results from an earlier simulation of the Breguet 941S. Where possible, airworthiness criteria are proposed for consideration.
