FLIGHT RESEARCH EXPERIMENT TO DETERMINE RIDE QUALITY AND PASSENGER ACCEPTANCE

The period covered by the report runs from June 15, 1973 through June 14, 1974. During this period, progress was made in two areas. First, a preliminary analysis of Jetstar ride-comfort data was completed. This included a study of human reaction to a two-axis motion environment produced by the GPAS system and the gathering of baseline data for ground-based simulator validation. In addition, a preliminary screening of bank angle effects was obtained. The second area in which progress was made is in the design and analysis of a ride-smoothing system for the Jetstar aircraft.
