Study of Helicopter Performance and Terminal Instrument Procedures
PACER SYSTEMS INC ARLINGTON VA
Pagination or Media Count:
In an effort to provide data needed to examine the feasibility of new procedures and criteria for terminal instrument procedures, this study effort addresses helicopter IFR operations in two parts. First, it documents, in a collective sense, the Instrumental Meteorological Conditions and Visual Meteorological Conditions performance capabilities of currently IFR-certified helicopters. A number of proposed helicopter procedures are analyzed for their suitability for further consideration or experimental testing, considering the current helicopter parametric performance envelopes. Second, helicopter instrument procedures are addressed in the long-term sense and recommendations are offered for development of post-1985 operations.
