Abstract:

The report deals with the pilot disorientationvertigo accident problem in Regular Army UH-1 helicopter operations. Individual case history data extracted from the USABAAR master aircraft accident files are presented on 44 UH-1 major orientation-error accidents that occurred during fiscal year 1967. Summary data listings involving a variety of operational and pilot-related accident factors are presented for each of the 44 cases. The listings are arranged to distinguish between those factors and events present before takeoff, i.e., the initial conditions associated with a given accident, and those that occurred or were manifested during the actual airborne phase of the accident flight.
