Lateral control required for satisfactory flying qualities based on flight tests of numerous airplanes

Gilruth, R R Turner, W N

Report presents the results of an analysis made of the aileron control characteristics of numerous airplanes tested in flight by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics. By the use of previously developed theory, the observed values of pb/2v for the various wing-aileron arrangements were examined to determine the effective section characteristics of the various aileron types.
