Abstract:

Airborne tests have been conducted using an instrumented Sikorsky S-7OB-2 helicopter. These tests were flown by a Royal Australian Navy Test Pilot and were primarily aimed at establishing limits for the S-7OB-2 when operating from an Adelaide class FFG-7 frigate. While the aircraft was instrumented, the opportunity was taken to fly a series of performance and flight dynamic tests to establish baseline data that will be used to further develop a mathematical model of the helicopter. This report details the scope of the performance tests, describes data processing procedures, and presents results of the tests.
