Abstract : A study was made: (a) to generalize the available experience in aviation weather forecasting for helicopter flights, (b) to study atmospheric turbulence on mountainous routes with specially equipped helicopters and airplanes and with passenger helicopters, (c) to discuss flight conditions on a given route with the flight personnel, and (d) to have the forecasters of the Aviation Weather Stations servicing helicopter flights engage in a study of the flight conditions on the route and in a refinement of the existing operating instructions on the forecasting of buffeting.
