THE ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS OF HELICOPTER OPERATIONS BY FEDERAL AGENCIES: CURRENT PROCEDURES AND RESEARCH NEEDS

The technical, economic, and environmental problems restricting commercial helicopter passenger operations are reviewed. The key considerations for effective assessment procedures are outlined and a preliminary model for the environmental analysis of helicopters is developed. It is recommended that this model, or some similar approach, be used as a common base for the development of comprehensive environmental assessment methods for each of the federal agencies concerned with helicopters. A description of the critical environmental research issues applicable to helicopters is also presented.
