Diekmann, Jobst Henning (2019) Flight Mechanical Challenges of STOL Aircraft Using Active High Lift. Journal of Aircraft, pp. 1-12. American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). DOI: 10.2514/1.C034910 ISSN 0021-8669

This paper focuses on the flight mechanical characteristics of an active high-lift supported transport-type aircraft. The presented configuration combines a boundary-layer controlled flaps system with the benefits of propeller slipstream deflection. The underlying aerodynamic models and assumptions are provided. The extraordinary flight performances especially at low airspeed will be pointed out, as well as potential weaknesses. Special attention is paid to the unusually strong aerodynamic couplings in the lateral motion. Therefore, flight dynamics characteristics will be presented and their challenges discussed. The key influences are pointed out and an outlook will be given, how to exploit this knowledge for safe and satisfactory aircraft operation and handling.
