MULTIPLE CONTROL INPUT DESIGN FOR IDENTIFICATION OF LIGHT AIRCRAFT

A design technique is presented for control input histories resulting in higher confidence levels in the estimate of lateral stability and control derivatives of light aircraft, and which cause dynamic motion favorable to reductions in numerical divergence tendencies in the identification algorithms. A combined aileron and rudder input design is demonstrated for the Cessna 172 aircraft.
