This handbook discusses the design requirements applicable to Army helicopters for all missions under visual flight rule VFR operation, day or night. As such, the scope of this document has been limited to cover the basic aerial vehicles. Design requirements for mission-essential equipment--e.g., weapons, sensors, cargo-handling equipment--are beyond this scope and are not discussed, although the helicopter-integral interface requirements for such equipment are included. The design of power plants, batteries, generators or alternators, and similar components, are also beyond the scope of the handbook.
