A study was made to evaluate recovery techniques associated with loss of power in single engine helicopters throughout the flight envelopes currently attainable in actual Army missions. The report includes detailed mission profile analyses, helicopter dynamic analysis, and considerations of system design factors. It is concluded that redundant warning of power plant failures is feasible and desirable but that automatic actuation following failure is impractical and unnecessary.
