Abstract:

This report presents a review and evaluation of the Flight Mechanics Panel Symposium on Rotorcraft Design. It is apparent that the levels of technology of both military and civil helicopters now entering service are very high. It is also evident that the highly specialized requirements of the military aircraft have caused the military helicopters to be less useful for direct application to civil markets. Of prime concern is the inability to produce derivatives of the large military transports for use as commercial airline helicopters. It was clear that the reason for this was the complex, costly civil certification required combined with a limited market as seen by the manufacturers.
