Abstract:

A second Army Preliminary Evaluation APE II of the YO-3A airplane was conducted from 2 through 6 February 1970. Nine test flights encompassing 6 flight hours were conducted from Crows Landing Naval Auxiliary Landing Field, California. Several simulated mission profiles were flown during day and night visual-flight-rule operations to determine if certain deficiencies and shortcomings found during APE I had been adequately corrected by the contractor. Additionally, personnel from the US Army Electronics Command and Night Vision Laboratory conducted an evaluation of the airplane mission equipment.
