Abstract:

Position error has been determined for a nose-boom mounted pitot static probe installed on a Sea King Mk. 50 helicopter. The error is sensibly constant in the speed range 35 - 110 knots and is unchanged in climb and descent. Corrections to be applied to indicated nose boom values are 7.5 knots in velocity, and up to 80 ft. in altitude. Author
