The normally crisp and precise Hornet became victim to inferior aircraft handling characteristics of adverse yaw followed by a moderately damped Dutch roll
The cumulative effects of the malfunctioning [flight-control system], coupled with autopilot use and rudder movements during the unrecognized dutch roll
, generated dutch roll
forces that exceeded the mishap aircraft's design structural limits," the Air Force said in its investigation into the crash, released last month.
Pinckney, began to make "corrective action" to compete with the Dutch roll.
Arquiette cited there were "organizational training problems" on the training of Dutch roll recovery procedures as well as handling problems related to the Series Yaw Damper.
The Dutch roll
teaches control against adverse yaw.
The Dutch roll is a wig-wag maneuver that imposes tremendous aerodynamic loads on the aircraft, especially the vertical tail.
Data were taken during various flight regimes, including taxi, takeoff, steady level flight, rolls, and Dutch rolls.
Pilots experienced with the Bonanza know some slight pressure on the rudder pedals helps damp any Dutch roll
2009), especially in missions requiring Dutch roll mode specific maneuvers, decreasing their stability in these conditions.
The paper deals with increasing the damping factor of oscillations for these aircraft, during maneouvers involving the Dutch roll mode.
The back seat of an airplane in a Dutch roll
is not a comfortable place to be.
The boat only made about five knots relative and was prone to Dutch roll
