A STOL AIRWORTHINESS INVESTIGATION USING A SIMULATION OF AN AUGMENTOR WING TRANSPORT. VOLUME II. SIMULATION DATA AND ANALYSIS
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 (AD/A-005 878) 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. Volume Two (NASA TM X-62,396; FAA-RD-74-179-II) contains a detailed description of the simulation and the data obtained. These data include performance measures, pilot commentary, and pilot ratings. This volume also contains a pilot/vehicle analysis of glide slope tracking and of the flare maneuver.
