MetadataShow full item record
The operations which might be performed by specialized mission helicopters are identified and several hypothetical mixes of these helicopters are developed and analyzed. Actual flight hours performed in fiscal years 1974 through 1978 are used as a data base for the study. The alternatives are analyzed in terms of total differential costs of performing the same missions that were conducted during the base period. Aspects such as the adding of additional helicopters to stations without additional personnel, dual qualification of personnel, shipboard operations of single-engine helicopters, and the short-range recovery replacement helicopter are also analyzed. It is concluded that it would have been cost effective to have operated specialized mission helicopters during the base period. Projections of future helicopter activity indicate that this advantage would continue into the future.
