HofflerViGYAN, Inc.Hampton, VAABSTRACTA flight research study of high-angle-of-attack handling qualities has been conducted at theNASA Dryden Flight Research Center using the F/A-18 High Alpha Research Vehicle (HARV).The objectives were to create a high-angle-of-attack handling qualities flight database, developappropriate research evaluation maneuvers, and evaluate high-angle-of-attack handling qualitiesguidelines and criteria. Using linear and nonlinear simulations and flight research data, thepredictions from each criterion were compared with the pilot ratings and comments. Proposedhigh-angle-of-attack nonlinear design guidelines and proposed handling qualities criteria andguidelines developed using piloted simulation were considered. Recently formulated time-domainNeal-Smith guidelines were also considered for application to high-angle-of-attack maneuvering.Conventional envelope criteria were evaluated for possible extension to the high-angle-of-attack regime. Additionally, the maneuvers were studied as potential evaluation techniques, including alimited validation of the proposed standard evaluation maneuver set. This paper gives an overviewof these research objectives through examples and summarizes result highlights. The maneuverdevelopment is described briefly, the criteria evaluation is emphasized with example results given,and a brief discussion of the database form and content is presented.
