AbstractRecent flight tests were conducted on The National Research Council of Canada Flight Research Laboratory Bell 412 Advanced Systems Research Aircraft to investigate the effects of an externally slung load on helicopter dynamics and handling qualities. Results indicated that helicopter response to control inputs are reduced around the pendulum natural frequency of the slung load, and the bandwidth of the helicopter decreases. Helicopter handling qualities for the precision hover task are actually better with the slung load, however, load swing was not induced for this task.
