The advantages of twin vertical Stabilizers over a single vertical Stabilizer of an aero plane are the rationale for this study. For conventional aero planes, the use of double vertical Stabilizers is being considered. The contribution to lateral stability has been examined for this application. XFLR5 software was used to conduct the overall analysis. The analysis was conducted for a single vertical Stabilizer as well as twin vertical Stabilizers, and the findings were compiled and correlated. It is critical to be able to fully explain and evaluate the stability and control parameters. It is crucial to understand the relationship between the aerodynamics of the airframe and its stability characteristics in order to increase flight endurance and deployment effectiveness. The stability analysis based on the dynamic model of the twin boom vertical Stabilizer is presented in this paper. The lateral-directional stability of an aero plane with a single vertical tail is determined to be 20% more efficient than that with twin boom vertical Stabilizers. The trim condition is moderately satisfied by an aircraft with twin vertical Stabilizers.
