Abstract:

This technical report presents the results of a study to determine the impact of aircrew anthropometry on airframe shape, size, weight, and cost, and their influence on flight performance factors of hover ceiling, maximum rate of climb, and maximum level flight airspeed. Definition of crew station variables was completed for both human factors and machine factors corresponding to various percentile ranges. These defined variables were used to determine the influence the selection of percentile range has on the final airframe configuration in terms of size, weight, performance, and cost. Author
