Abstract

As is well known, the horizontal tail of the plane has a function to produce a force to provide stability in the longitudinal spell of the plane. The determination of the contribution of the horizontal tail to longitudinal stability on the plane can be determined by simple methods such as using Digital DATCOM software. The simulations predicted by this method can save both time and cost. Nevertheless, the determination of the horizontal tail volume ratio can still be taken into further calculation so that the horizontal tail of the aircraft to work optimally. Using the analytic calculation of the aircraft equation of motion, the value of the horizontal tail volume ratio on the plane can be determined. The value of this horizontal tail volume ratio can be used as a reference to modify the area of the horizontal tail dimension of the aircraft. The calculation results show that the area of the horizontal tail of the aircraft can be reduced to 13.16 m2 and the dimensions for the new horizontal tail shape can be determined by considering the aspect ratio and taper ratio of the reference design.
