Lift ratings for V/STOL propulsion units are identified based on the requirements of the aircraft system. Typical V/STOL handling criteria are applied in the derivation of the lift rating method. Analytical techniques are presented for the evaluation of contributing factors associated with both the aircraft and propulsion system characteristics. Two typical aircraft systems are used to determine representative levels of lift ratings for the propulsion units.
