This paper describes the salient features of an integrated software package called quot;HATquot; (Handling-qualities Analysis Toolbox) developed for the evaluation of the handling qualities of rotorcraft and fixed-wing aircraft. The quantitative handling qualities criteria for military rotorcraft specified in ADS-33E, and the handling qualities13; and APC (Aircraft-Pilot Coupling) prediction criteria for fixed-wing aircraft specified in MIL-STD-1797A, and several new criteria published in open literature, are incorporated in the software package. The software package can also be used for the analysis of the handling qualities of tilt-rotor aircraft operating in pure rotorcraft mode or in pure aeroplane mode. HAT is a fully GUI based software package, configured as a MATLAB Toolbox, and modular in structure. A comprehensive demonstration programme and several on-screen help13; messages are included in the software to help a new user. The rotorcraft part of the software was validated using BO 105 helicopter handling qualities database generated by DLR, Germany, and the fixed-wing part of the software was validated using several HQ and APC databases available in the open literature. Throughout this paper emphasis is placed on rotorcraft handling qualities.
