Abstract

The assessment of aircraft handling qualities poses an interesting measurement problem. Such assessments have always been an important part in an aircraft's design and development process. Handling quality is defined as those qualities or characteristics of an aircraft that govern the ease and precision with which a pilot is able to perform the tasks required in support of the aircraft's role. The pilot's opinion about the behavior of the aircraft he is handling is discussed.
