Abstract:

A feasibility study was made of a helicopter payload meter concept. A simple, manually operated device was developed and tested, which gives an indication of payload capability in terms of gas generator speed for the prevailing atmospheric conditions where vertical take-offs and landings are required from a confined area. Tests were conducted by the U.S. Army Aviation Test Board, and the device was found to have military potential.
