In order to take full advantage of the helicopters unique flight characteristics, enhanced terminal instrument procedures TERPS need to be developed for a variety of non-standard operational situations. These include non-standard landing navigation aids, precision and non-precision approach profiles, landing sites, and avionics systems. Currently, TERPS criteria are largely established by extensive flight testing. This study examined the requirements for using helicopter cockpit simulators in place of flight testing to generate data necessary for enhanced TERPS development.
