With the advent of control configured vehicle technology, the design concepts of contemporary high-performance aircraft have undergone revolutionary changes. The extreme reliability of present-day airborne sensors, flight computers, and high-performance actuators has made it possible to design aircraft control systems as full-authority, carefree maneuvering systems using fly-by-wire technology, resulting in the successful development of longitudinally statically unstable airframes. Along with the advances in control technology, the developments in system identification theory have resulted in improved methods of aircraft parameter estimation using flight data. A consequence of all this advancement is the key role flight mechanics and system theory together play in the analysis and optimization of aircraft performance.
