CHAPTER TITLE: Helicopter Instrument Procedures
Below is a list of the figures (diagrams, charts, and pictures) from the IPH Chapter 7. They are listed in the order they are found in the Instrument Procedures Handbook.
Icing tests. To safely provide an all-weather capability and flight into known icing conditions that would otherwise delay or cancel winter flight operations, the digital control of the S-92 Rotor Ice Protection System (RIPS) determines the temperature and moisture content of the air and removes any ice buildup by heating the main and tail rotor blades. The system is shown here during testing.
VMINI limitations, maximum IFR approach angles and G/A mode speeds for selected IFR certified helicopters.
Autopilot bank angle and roll rate limits for the S-76 used by the William J. Hughes Technical Center for Flight Tests.
Flight tests at the William J. Hughes Technical Center point out the importance of airspeed control and using the correct technique to make a turning missed approach.
