The feasibility of a personnel escape capsule system for helicopters is shown. This feasibility was demonstrated by incorporating an escape system into an UH-25B helicopter and conducting tie-down, drop, and drone tests. The present status of designing this type of system into an operational helicopter such as the CH-46 and UH-1 helicopter is outlined.
