Abstract:

Two types of aircraft, the CV-2 Caribou and the CH-47 Chinook, are presently available for medical evacuation of relatively large loads 14 and 24 litters respectively from minimally prepared landing sites. This report indicates maximum rigging times for conversion of these aircraft to ambulance use, optimal crew sizes for minimum loading times, and some suggestions for loading methods and design of future large medical evacuation aircraft.
