Abstract

This paper presents a simulation handling qualities assessment for a small business jet augmented with an L1 adaptive flight control system. In particular, the main objective of the study is to investigate the ability of L1 adaptive control to improve aircraft handling qualities and prevent unfavorable aircraft-pilot interactions in the presence of aircraft fail- ures. The experiments have been conducted on the motion-based SIMONA Research Simulator at the Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands. The preliminary re- sults presented in this paper suggest that L1 adaptive control is able to provide consistent aircraft handling qualities in the presence of faults and failures and in different atmospheric (turbulence) conditions.
