The purpose of this investigation was to determine the static longitudinal stability of the Cessna 310d airplane through steady state flight tests. The flight test method used to determine the location of the neutral points was that in which the equilibrium elevator angle and stock force were measured at various steady state airspeeds and center of gravity locations. The maneuver points were determined from measurements of equilibrium elevator angle and stick force for various load factors and center of gravity locations in steady turns.
