Abstract: A stall recovery guidance system was designed to help pilots improve their stall recovery performance when the current aircraft state may be unrecognized under various complicating operational factors. Candidate guidance algorithms were connected to the split-cue pitch and roll flight directors that are standard on large transport commercial aircraft. A new thrust guidance algorithm and cue was also developed to help pilots prevent the combination of excessive thrust and nose-up stabilizer trim. The overall system was designed to reinforce the current FAA recommended stall recovery procedure. A general transport aircraft model, similar to a Boeing 757, with an extended aerodynamic database for improved stall dynamics simulation fidelity was integrated into the Vertical Motion Simulator at NASA Ames Research Center. A detailed study of the guidance system was then conducted across four stall scenarios with 30 commercial and 10 research test pilots, and the results are reported.
