A marine helicopter should remain sufficiently upright to permit safe evacuation of all personnel with a flotation system. And the rule requires that after ditching in water, the adequate flotation time will allow the occupants to leave the rotorcraft. To this end, stability test of the emergency flotation system for Korean marine helicopter was performed by using "Froude scaling method" in water tank. Test configuration and conditions were determined in consideration of the helicopter loading condition and related specifications. Test results meet the stability requirements at sea state code 4 and sea state code 2 with puncture conditions.
