Understanding Airplane's Longitudinal, Lateral & Directional Stability and the Need for Stabilizers!
Published at : 12 Jan 2021
Here we look at the response of an Airplane in flight after it is subject to a disturbance. We see what is stability and types of Stability on an Aircraft.
We go more specific into Static Stability and look at the differences between Positive Static Stability; Negative Static Stability; Neutral Static Stability.
Then we see Positive Static Stability and its effect along the Longitudinal, Lateral and Yaw Axis.
A detailed discussion on Center of Pressure and Center of Gravity and the effect of moving the CP ahead and behind the CG; and why Horizontal Stabilizers are required.
We also see how the Vertical Stabilizer assists in Lateral Stability and the Directional Stability.
Hope you find it useful.
