Aerodynamic characteristics of a tail system which consists of a single wing was examined experimentally. Although many conventional airplanes are equipped with one or more vertical tail(s) and a pair of horizontal tail for longitudinal and directional control, respectively, a wind tunnel experiment revealed that an appropriately configured single wing can control pitch and yaw of an airplane. The windtunnel test was performed on a model which consists of a main wing and a single wing tail. Aerodynamic forces were measured by a force balance and oil-flow visualization was performed as well. In the windtunnel test, two different steering methods of a single wing tail system were examined and both of them were shown to work compatibly.
