Abstract
Normalized W/a performance data for a helicopter can be obtained during a constant altitude flight with the same accuracy as the ratio can be obtained during a variable density flight. The only bound on this method is that the data acquisition be as rapid as possible to minimize the weight change during the data acquisition phase.
