Abstract:

This report is the fifth in a longitudinal series of reports dealing with the pilot disorientationvertigo problem in Regular Army UH-1 helicopter operations. Individual case history data extracted from the USAAAVS master aircraft accident files are presented on major orientation-error accidents that occurred in UH-1 aircraft during fiscal year 1971. Summary data listings involving a variety of operational and pilot-related accident factors are presented for each of the 31 cases. The listings are arranged to distinguish between those factors and events present before takeoff, i.e., the initial conditions associated with a given accident, and those which occurred or were manifested during the actual airborne phase of the accident flight.
