USAF Test Pilot School Use of DIGITAC in Systems Testing 851827

The US Air Force Test Pilot School has employed the YA-7D DIGITAC in its curriculum since 1976. To date a dozen projects have been carried out by student classes investigating such things as improved directional control, the effect of depressed roll axis on air-to-air tracking, and airborne verification of computer simulated flying qualities. Future tests will help to provide answers to questions arising during the design and testing of new highly augmented flight control systems.
