Abstract:

The report contains the results of research in survival aspects of Naval aircraft crashes. The study was made to identify areas for needed improvement in structural design. A literature study, documented crash data, and firsthand data obtained in interviews with Naval personnel and in visits to Naval facilities established a data base which was used to identify the Naval aircraft crash environment and crash survival problems. The study indicated that the Naval Aircraft Accident Report form should include requests for specific impact variables. It also noted Naval helicopters as a productive area for crashworthiness improvement.
