The steady-state behavior of an aircraft in response to control and disturbance inputs has a major impact on its performance and flying qualities, and it is, to a large extent, not readily predicted by the aircraft's stability and transient behavior. Singular as well as nonsingular response can result as a consequence of the command vector's definition, i. e. , equilibrium in the command vector can imply disequilibrium in the state. The flight control structure can be modified to account for this characteristic, and it is shown that systems with identical eigenvalues and eigenvectors but dissimilar command vectors have markedly different responses.
