Abstract:

The ultimate usefulness of the UH-1B540 helicopter could be enhanced by an improvement in the hover and climb capabilities and the capability of the helicopter to reach placard limit airspeeds under a wider variety of ambient condition-gross weight combinations. The decision by the Iroquois Project Manager to install the T53-L-13 in future production UH-1B540 helicopters resulted in the requirement for the test outlined in this test plan.
