Factors limiting the landing approach speed of airplanes from the viewpoint of a pilot by R. C Innis ( Book )
2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An examination was made from the pilot's point of view of some of the factors limiting the landing approach speed of airplanes. The results of two specific aircraft were considered; one a sweptwing jet fighter employing blowing-type boundarylayer control (BLC) on highly deflected leadingand trailing-edge flaps, and the other a straight-wing, twin-engine cargo aircraft using propeller slipstream in conjunction with an area suction BLC system on the flaps and drooped ailerons to develop high lift. An attempt is made to provide a better understanding of the effect of various stability and control characteristics on the pilot's selection of approach speeds. It is shown that in the presence of poor handling qualities, the pilot demands an excess margin of speed which he uses to compensate for the attention required by the undesirable characteristics.

Flight-test evaluation of STOL control and flight director concepts in a powered-lift aircraft flying curved decelerating approaches by W. S Hindson ( Book )
7 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 9 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.
