Like I mentioned before, landing gear extension is fine as a "0 to 1" 
parameter. Elevator,
rudder, speedbrake, spoilers, etc. in angular measurements.

Now, *IF* we are to normalize these angular parameters in the FGInterface 
class, WHAT is
the non-dimensionalizing procedure? How do we non-dimensionalize with any 
degree of
accuracy and compatibility?
