This text presents the principles of dynamics and control for vertical, short take-off landing (VSTOL) aircraft. It is the first book of its kind. The book is intended for graduate students and professionals in aeronautics who have knowledge of linear systems analysis, aircraft static and dynamic stability and control. The text begins with a discussion of VSTOL aircraft operations. Control strategies, equations of motion, longitudinal and lateral-directional flying qualities in both hover and forward flight, wind and turbulence responses, and control augmentation and cockpit displays are covered. Specific examples of the YAV-8B Harrier and XV-15 Tilt Rotor aircraft are used to illustrate actual VSTOL dynamic and control characteristics.
