Abstract:

An analysis is presented of more than 1,300 hours flight loads records obtained from light aircraft engaged in low altitude terrain-following operations. It is shown that continuous operation in the average low altitude environment reduces the estimated fatigue life by a factor of 15 to 1 when compared with the normal operating environment, and in the limiting condition imposed by pilot tolerance this factor is increased to 90 to 1.
