Consider the executive jet aircraft in flight at an altitude of 33,000 ft. Assume the aircraft weight is a constant 73,000 lbs. Assume the aircraft is operating at a
constant 90 percent of full throttle with a constant angle of attack of 2.5 degrees and a constant bank angle of 15 degrees.
(a) Describe a steady turning flight condition for these aircraft inputs. What is the constant aircraft airspeed? What is the constant flight path angle of the
aircraft? What is the radius of the turn?
(b) Develop a flight simulation of the turning flight dynamics assuming that the initial aircraft airspeed exceeds its steady flight value by 15 ft/s; assume the
initial flight path angle is exactly the steady flight value. Develop time response plots for the airspeed, the flight path angle, and the change in altitude of the
aircraft. Develop a plot of the projection of the aircraft path onto a horizontal plane.
(c) Develop a flight simulation of the turning flight dynamics assuming that the initial flight path angle exceeds its steady flight value by 2 degrees; assume the
aircraft airspeed is exactly the steady flight value. Develop time response plots for the airspeed, the flight path angle, and the change in altitude of the aircraft.
Develop a plot of the projection of the aircraft path on to a horizontal plane.
