jukzizy created the topic: Aerodynamic

a temporary disturbance happens to an aeroplane and veers the air craft to the left. if the air craft has a strong directional static stability, what will happen after the disturbance has finished?

John.Heddles replied the topic: Aerodynamic

Static stability in any axis relates to the tendency of the aircraft to want to return to the previous undisturbed condition. In respect of directional stability, if a perturbation causes a yaw, then the aircraft will want to head back to the original direction if the stability is high.
