Abstract
Many international modelling and simulation capabilities for the assessment of flying difficulty for shipboard launch and recovery operations consider only airwake-related disturbances in the 0.2-2 Hz range as contributing to pilot workload. Recent work assessing the impacts of ship motion on helicopter operations has questioned the validity of this range, which is examined in this report. Although the current literature is inconclusive, this report serves to align future work.
