Author(s): Arun James, Nivin Francis

Abstract: Stability of an aircraft means its tendency to return to its equilibrium position after it’s stability has been disturbed. The disturbance may be due to the external forces or the atmospheric phenomena. The stability and control refers to the characteristics of an airplane’s handling and flying quality. Here I am doing the detailed study about the stability and control of an aircraft, by what makes the aircraft stable, how to design control system, what are the conditions. Future scopes of the stability and control is that, it can contribute the system stability improvement ensuring secure and stable operation of the power system in the fighter jet and also in commercial aircraft.
