Abstract:

The United States Army Aviation Engineering Flight Activity conducted a limited in-flight artificial icing evaluation of the AH-1G helicopter from 22 October through 6 November 1973 at Fort Wainwright, Alaska, and from 22 March through 2 April 1974 in the vicinity of Moses Lake, Washington. During the test program 8.5 hours of productive flight time were flown, of which 4.0 hours were in the artificial icing environment. Three deficiencies were noted which adversely affect the safe operation of the AH-1G helicopter in an icing environment.
