The McDonnell Aircraft Company (MCAIR) [ILLEGIBLE]sign philosophy pertaining to the departure [ILLEGIBLE]d spin resistance and out-of-control recovery [ILLEGIBLE]aracteristics of fighter aircraft is pre[ILLEGIBLE]nted. The more important military specification requirements are reviewed and their [ILLEGIBLE]fluence on this philosophy is discussed. Aerodynamic stability and control criteria and control system design guidelines are presented which are used to assure that a fighter aircraft will exhibit a high level of departure and spin resistance and rapid recovery from out-of-control situations.
