Flight tests were made to determine the lateral and directional stability and control characteristics of an F-47D-30 airplane. The results of these tests showed the airplane stability to be weak directionally in low-speed conditions. In the power-off landing condition and high-speed conditions, the directional stability was satisfactory.
