Abstract:

This report describes an evaluation of the Northeast Helicopter Corridor Routes NEC. The Northeast Corridor is an experimental route between Boston and Washington, D.C., consisting of two, one-way, reduced width airways designed expressly for helicopter operations. The evaluation is a joint effort of the Federal Aviation Administration FAA and the Helicopter Association of America HAA. The data being gathered is in the form of data extraction tapes from Automated Radar Terminal Service ARTS equipped air traffic control ATC facilities along the routes and flight logs submitted by the helicopter pilots after each corridor test flight. The test flights are being made as cooperating corporate helicopter operators fly the corridor in the course of their normal operations. The data collection phase of this evaluation began July 15, 1979, and will continue until July 15, 1980. Author
