2 S&C Responsibilities Select/design/size all control surfaces, e.g. horizontal tail, vertical tail, etc. (sizes to aerodynamics & configuration Determine/Ensure static margin range for all flight conditions Evaluate longitudinal and lateral stability (suggest needed changes to configuration) Specify avionics and any digital control system (weight/size to internal configuration) Evaluate dynamic stability (phugoid & short period) and evaluate flying qualities (e.g. with a flight simulator)
