Abstract : Results of structural tests conducted on the complete airframe of the Vertol CH-47A helicopter are reported for all critical flight, landing, take- off, and ground handling conditions. Two critical test conditions for growth potential are also presented. The structure of the Vertol CH-47A helicopter, with the exception of the litter and troop seat installations, was capable of withstanding the static ultimate loads generated by 71 different test conditions.
