The AHS International Rotorcraft Handling Qualities Specialists' Meeting was held at the University of Alabama in Huntsville on February 19-20, 2014. It was a great success with nearly 100 attendees, including about one-third government participants.
This was an excellent interchange on the limtations of the current Aeronautical Design Standard 33 (ADS-33), as well as the latest information on new thoughts and approaches for future generations of rotorcraft.
