Flight-test evaluation of STOL control and flight director concepts in a powered-lift aircraft flying curved decelerating approaches by W. S Hindson ( Book )
10 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Flight tests were carried out to assess the feasibility of piloted steep, curved, and decelerating-approach profiles in powered-lift STOL aircraft. Several STOL control concepts representative of a variety of aircraft were evaluated in conjunction with suitably designed flight directors. The tests were carried out in a real navigation environment, employed special electronic cockpit displays, and included the development of operational procedures considered appropriate to this class of aircraft. Data are presented describing the performance achieved and the control utilization involved in flying 180 deg turning, descending, and decelerating-approach profiles to landing. The results suggest that such moderately complex piloted instrument approaches may indeed be feasible from a pilot acceptance point of view, given an acceptable navigation environment. Systems with the capability of those used in this experiment can provide the potential of achieving instrument operations on curved, descending, and decelerating landing approaches to weather minima corresponding to CTOL Category II criteria, while also providing a means of realizing more efficient operations during visual flight conditions.

Estimates of the lateral-directional stability derivatives of a helicopter from flight measurements = Les évaluations des mesures en vol des dérivées de stabilité laterales-directionnelles du̓n hélicoptère by National Aeronautical Establishment (Canada) ( Book )
5 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The lateral-directional stability derivatives for a medium-sized single rotor helicopter have been estimated for three different forward speeds. The analysis technique is based on a least squares quasilinearization method which employs a specially formatted parameter vector so that reliable a priori estimates can be used to assist convergence. An additional unique feature is the procedure adopted to reduce the influence of unknown atmospheric inputs on the parameter estimates by means of a conglomerate analysis of several similar runs.

Modification of V/stol instrument approach geometry as a means of compensating for along-track wind effects by W. S Hindson ( Book )
5 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The influence of wind on the low speed approach and landing considerations for V/STOL aircraft poses new problems which, although neglected for conventional aircraft, may require specific solutions for these new designs. A novel method to allow for significant along-track wind effects, including shears, is proposed whereby the approach geometry relative to the earth is modified according to the ambient wind condition
A flight investigation using variable glide path trajectories to compensate for winds and moderate wind shears by W. S Hindson ( Book )
7 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The influence of wind, wind shears and turbulence on the approach and landing tasks of STOL and V/STOL aircraft has become of significant concern for this evolving class of flight vehicles, particularly during instrument flight operations. Flight experiments have been carried out to assess the considerations in alleviating the effects of along-track, a priori wind, including moderate shears, by adjusting the approach glide path for the conditions of the day. A Bell 205A helicopter modified as an airborne simulator and equipped with a modest programmable guidance and display capability was used for the tests, which were carried out in the operational environment of the Rockcliffe (Ottawa) STOLport.

Analysis of several glidepath and speed control autopilot concepts for a powered-lift STOL aircraft by W. S Hindson ( Book )

Study of Helicopter Roll Control Effectiveness Criteria ( Book )
1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A study of helicopter roll control effectiveness based on closed-loop task performance measurement and modeling is presented. Roll control criteria are based upon task margin, the excess of vehicle task performance capability over the pilot's task performance demand. Appropriate helicopter roll axis dynamic models are defined for use with analytic models for task performance. Both near-earth and up-and-away large-amplitude maneuvering phases are considered. The results of in-flight and moving-base simulation measurements are presented to support the roll control effectiveness criteria offered. This Volume contains the theoretical analysis, simulation results and criteria development. Keywords: Rotorcraft; Helicopter handling qualities. (Author)
