Abstract:

The high-g maneuver capabilities of the AH-1G have been investigated in this effort. Flight test data for 132 high-g maneuvers have been studied and statistically analyzed to determine the relationships among the variables. A series of fixed-collective symmetric pullups was simulated, using the Rotorcraft Flight Simulation Program C81, to determine the mechanisms limiting high-g maneuvers of the AH-1G. Statistical analysis of the C81 data was used to supplement the analysis of the test data. Three additional maneuvers, similar to the most severe test maneuvers, were simulated.
