OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR FLIGHT CONTROL AND NAVIGATION SYSTEMS FOR SHORT HAUL TRANSPORT AIRCRAFT

Operational procedures for use in an assumed short haul transport route were evaluated. The curved path approaches in airline use by large jet airplanes were studied. The characteristics of these approaches were included in development of operational procedures for transitions and approaches by a jet STOL transport. These procedures were used in a simulation experiment and were satisfactory for autoflight operation. A minimum turn radius of 3,000 ft. for a 180 final turn was determined for the wind conditions tested. The accuracy of the approaches was very good.
