This work consists on studying and implementing a method for longitudinal stability derivates estimation of aircraft. For that, experimental procedures will be applied to an aero model inside a wind tunnel using, for measurements, an aerodynamic balance, designed and built by other students, which has the capacity of measuring the three aerodynamic forces and the three moments. In this way, it is expected to continue these students works who designed a wind tunnel aero model and the mentioned aerodynamic balance.Finally, it must be mentioned that this work is part of an EESC's Aeronautics Group project. During the last years, this Group has been developing an UAV. So, the implemented method will be used to obtain the stability derivates of the developed aircraft.
