Rotorcraft-Pilot Coupling Research in Europe: A Success Story in Collaboration

Concluding, this paper is intended to give an overview of the various numerical and experimental activities of research starting with the GARTEUR action group which laid the foundations for adverse vehicle-pilot coupling research and culminating in the ARISTOTEL project which refined research and extended the application to fixed wing crafts. Selected results were highlighted and discussed demonstrating the used approach to investigate different RPC phenomena in a schematic manner.
