The design of a candidate control law for LCA to improve longitudinal handling quality by satisfying C* criteria which is a blend of normal acceleration and pitch rate is . addressed The model following control technic used, wherein the pilot input goes through a dynamic C* model and feed forward gains so that the C* of aircraft is forced to follow that of the model in addition to satisfying short period damping and natural frequency requirements . The perfect model following, optimal model following and pole placement technics are used for computing feed back and feed forward gains .
