Abstract:

The Vertical Flight IFR Terminal Area Procedures VERTAPS Program Plan was developed by Systems Control Technology, Inc., Boeing Defense Space Group, Helicopters Division, and Bell Helicopter TEXTRON. The plan describes tasks to be performed in a five year program to develop vertical flight instrument procedures VFIPS and air traffic control ATC procedures to integrate advanced vertical flight aircraft into the National Airspace System. The plan proposes the development and evaluation of instrument procedures using high-fidelity, piloted simulators and flight test. VERTAPS is intended to produce usable VFIPS and ATC procedures, and validate simulation as a valuable counterpart to flight test in instrument procedure development.
