Flight Physics pp Cite as. The term flying qualities denotes primarily the combination of stability and control properties which have an important influence on the ease and precision with which a pilot can maintain a state of equilibrium and execute manoeuvres, and thereby on flight safety and operational effectiveness. The term stability characterizes the motion of an aeroplane when returning to its equilibrium position after it has been disturbed from it without the pilot taking action. Aircraft control describes the response to actions taken by a pilot to induce and maintain a state of equilibrium or to execute manoeuvres. For military aircraft, the definition of flying qualities is broadened with an assessment of the precision and effectiveness with which tasks can be performed. Qualities like agility and targeting precision are closely associated with handling qualities , a term which denotes the short-term dynamic response of an aeroplane as a reaction to control.
