Description

From Summary: "An analysis of the gust and gust-load experience of a low-altitude transcontinental transport airplane, based on 834 hours of VGH record, is presented. The relation of gust experience to airspeed, altitude, season of the year, and flight condition is considered. An estimate of the overall gust history for the present type of operations is derived from a synthesis of the VGH data and available V-G data."
