Abstract:

A study was made a to generalize the available experience in aviation weather forecasting for helicopter flights, b to study atmospheric turbulence on mountainous routes with specially equipped helicopters and airplanes and with passenger helicopters, c to discuss flight conditions on a given route with the flight personnel, and d to have the forecasters of the Aviation Weather Stations servicing helicopter flights engage in a study of the flight conditions on the route and in a refinement of the existing operating instructions on the forecasting of buffeting.
