    A trainer is a class of aircraft designed specifically to facilitate flight training of pilots and aircrews. The use of a dedicated trainer aircraft with additional safety features—such as tandem flight controls, forgiving flight characteristics and a simplified cockpit arrangement—allows pilots-in-training to safely advance their real-time piloting, navigation and warfighting skills. Aircraft having the following basic features will be so regarded: rotors of either fixed collective pitch or collective pitch control that are not adjustable in flight, single engine with fixed or ground adjustable pitch propeller, no more than two occupant seats, and a .

[H Paul Stough; Daniel J DiCarlo; James M Patton; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Scientific and Technical Information Branch.]. Flight testing is a branch of aeronautical engineering that develops and gathers data during flight of an aircraft, or atmospheric testing of launch vehicles and reusable spacecraft, and then analyzes the data to evaluate the aerodynamic flight characteristics of the vehicle in order to validate the design, including safety aspects.. The flight test phase accomplishes two major .

I'm reading Stick and Rudder by Wolfgang Langewiesche, and in Chapter 7 titled, "What the Airplane Wants to Do" he discusses stability. In discussing it, he says that no plane yet built is completely "well-behaved" and that the plane closest to perfection is Fred E. Weick's Ercoupe.. It's been over 50 years since this book was written.

Scientific and Technical Information Office.; Langley Research Center. Flight Dynamics Branch.;]. This chapter discusses flight test techniques. The development of adequate flight test techniques for the appraisal of stability and control characteristics and flying qualities of airplanes is of quite recent origin.

There are two major longitudinal modes of free motion of the airplane. One of these is the long period or phugoid mode. The Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) flight control law was implemented on the MAX to mitigate the aircraft's tendency to pitch up because of the aerodynamic effect of its larger, heavier, and more powerful CFM LEAP-1B engines and nacelles.

The stated goal of MCAS, according to Boeing, was to provide consistent aircraft handling characteristics. The aircraft was slightly speed stable throughout the flight envelope. That said, it was extremely difficult to perform precise flight-test measurements because of the weird control characteristics the aircraft exhibited.

STOUGH, III. One more caveat, the handling characteristics of an LSA will differ from a typical general aviation non-LSA trainer. Pilots who transition down to what seems to be a simple to operate airplane often underestimate the need for training. The Aeronca Model 7 Champion, more commonly known as the Champ, is a single-engine, two-seat, fixed conventional gear airplane.

Designed for flight training and personal use, it entered production in the United States in To take advantage of the new light-sport aircraft category, the Champion was returned to production in choice is to fly an airplane with similar characteristics, which may include a TC’d airplane (see Appendix 2, Categorizing Designs or Models).

Due to construction or rigging differences, note that non-TC’d airplanes of the same model may have different handling and performance characteristics. Figure 1, Recommend Airplane Transition. Aircraft Technical Data & Specifications.

The Short SB.6 Seamew was a British aircraft designed in by David Keith-Lucas of Shorts as a lightweight anti-submarine platform to replace the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm (FAA)'s Grumman Avenger AS 4 with the Reserve branch of the service.

It first flew on 23 Augustbut, due to poor performance coupled with shifting defence doctrine, it never reached service.

Flying qualities is one of the three principal regimes in the science of flight test, which also includes performance and systems. Flying qualities involves the study and evaluation of the stability and control characteristics of an aircraft.

They have a critical bearing on the safety of flight and on the ease of controlling an airplane in steady flight and in maneuvers.
