Abstract:

A mathematical model of the Sea King Mk 50 helicopter has been developed at ARL to allow prediction of the aircraft flight behaviour for a wide range of specified conditions. Validation of the model has been performed by successive comparisons with flight data and model adjustment to achieve acceptable overall agreement. Such comparisons have been made for trimmed flight, dynamic responses to control inputs and automatic transitions associated with the ASW role. Some remaining deficiencies in the model could be addressed by modifications tailored to a specific application. Keywords Australia Flight testing Flight maneuvers.
