ANALYSIS OF THE ECONOMIC BENEFITS OF UTILITY HELICOPTER SAFETY DESIGN FEATURES

An analysis of the economic benefits of providing crashworthiness and other flight safety improvements within future Army utility helicopters is discussed. The analysis is based on a study of Army/Bell Helicopter UH-1H aircraft accident reports and projects future accident losses for a number of candidate utility helicopter designs. Losses are projected for a twenty year period of peacetime operation. Projections are derived based on each candidate's design features and the effectiveness of these features in accident/injury prevention under the particular circumstances in each UH-1H accident.
