Abstract:

This thesis gives the user of an HP-41CV handheld programmable calculator of the IBM 3033 computer, acceptable results of helicopter system wight estimations during the preliminary design phase. The computer program consists of several subroutines and will compute system weight estimates according to Military Standard 1374A. Three categories of military helicopters can be designed observation, utility, and cargo. Detailed knowledge of helicopters is not required. Author
