Evaluations of Helicopter Instrument-Flight Handling Qualities (Evaluation de la Maniabilite des Helicopteres pour le vol aux Instruments),
NATIONAL AERONAUTICAL ESTABLISHMENT OTTAWA (ONTARIO)
Pagination or Media Count:
The NAE Airborne Simulator, a modified and suitably equipped Bell 205A helicopter, was used in experiments to provide background information on the handling qualities requirements for helicopter instrument flight. This investigation was in support of a regulatory review indertaken by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration as part of an overall assessment of the helicopter certification process. The results illustrate the inter-dependence of the various stability and control characteristics which contribute to sate instrument flight handling qualities, and underline the importance of good mission simulation in conducting certification-related experiments.
