Load environments for general aviation and business aircraft have not been a matter of concern in the past, except for static strength purposes. Increased recognition of the importance of fatigue qualification must be accompanied by an examination of how these aircraft are being used.
The approach suggested here is a simplification of that used by the transport aircraft industry. Examinations of the gust and maneuver load environments are made relative to different types of flight operations.
