Abstract:

The United States Army Aviation Engineering Flight Activity conducted an evaluation of the C-12A aircraft. During the test program four flights totaling 3.8 hours were flown. Soft soil and simulated rough terrain operations were conducted. The C-12A met the requirements of the prime item development specification for operating on soft soil. If the aircraft is to be operated on roughunprepared terrain, one deficiency was found during this test program failure of the right main landing gear while braking over simulated rough terrain.
