Abstract : It is concluded that the Universal Helicopter Cargo Hook, 6,000- Pound Capacity, is suitable for U. S. Army use in the UH-1D helicopter under arctic winter conditions with loads ranging from 12 to 4,000 pounds. The test hook is superior to the standard hook with respect to number and location of release controls, pilot warning light and static line attachment ring location. The test hook was not satisfactory with respect to weight and opening under 'no load' condition. (Author)
