Abstract:

The kit was installed in a UH-1C Helicopter, serial number 65-9467, and flight tested for 487 hours. The kit was periodically inspected for adverse effects. The complete kit was installed in the helicopter by one Single-Rotor Aircraft Mechanic MOS 67N20 in five man-hours. No special tools or skills were required. The installation time is not indicative of normal installation time, because the instructions were written by the manufacturer as the kit was being installed by USAAVNTBD personnel. The installation instructions inclosure 2 developed during the installation of the test item were satisfactory for installing and removing the kit. However, the 32 installation man-hours required by the manufacturer section 1, inclosure 2 exceed those required during this installation, and should be changed to more closely reflect those man-hours required.
