Abstract

Health Management Systems (HMS) may help pilots resolve faults in flight control systems and other failures that affect aircraft stability. For HMS to be effective, they must (1) alert pilots to problems early enough that the pilot can reasonably resolve the fault and, (2) if the aircraft's handling qualities are severely degraded, provide stability augmentation. This study examines these requirements of HMS through fast-time simulations of a pilot model controlling an aircraft experiencing flight control system faults and/or handling qualities degradations.
