Abstract:

Tests were conducted on a covering for ready to fly type storage f helicopters on carrier flight decks. The covers are manufactured from ten ounce Army Duck treated with a dry type water repellent finish, and are tailored to reduce possible wind damage. Extensive use of zippers and fasteners were made to reduce the installation time and the number of personnel required to don and doff the cover.
