Abstract:

Tests were made to determine the suitability for Army use of the YAC-1DH aircraft for parachute delivery of personnel, supplies, and equipment under arctic winter conditions, and to determine t e suitability of temperate zone techniques for parachute delivery of personnel, supplies and equipment under arctic winter conditions. It was concluded that the YAC-1DH Aircraft will be suitable for Army use under arctic winter conditions for parachute delivery of personnel, supplies, and equipment when modified to correct the discrepancies. The parachute procedures and techniques developed for use in temperate climates with the test aircraft are suitable for Army use under arctic winter conditions. The factory modification of the cargo compartment tiedown grid provided adequate restraint for aircraft loads. A lesser number of the types and number of tiedowns than those found on the test aircraft would result in insufficient tiedowns. Author
