Abstract:

This document defines the flying qualities characteristics of the CH- 46E helicopter. The data are representative of both the metal-bladed and composite-bladed versions. Analytically computed static trim data are presented for a wide range of configurations gross weight, c.g. and flight conditions airspeed, altitude, sideslip, climb, autorotation. Correlation of trim data with available flight test data is provided for validation. Analytically computed static stability and control derivatives are compiled for significant combinations of configuration and flight condition. Time history data relating to dynamic stability, control response and Stability Augmentation System failures are extracted from flight test records obtained during the contractors CH-46E SLEP II flight test program.
