Abstract: The present work deals with the stochastic and cost – benefit analysis of a helicopter taking into account the situation of precautionary landing caused by blockage in its fuel – filter. The system has been analysed by developing a model and finding the various indices of system effectiveness like mean time to filter clogging, expected up (flying) time, expected number of precautionary landings etc. The regenerative point technique has been used for the purpose. The obtained measures have been further used to analyse the profit generated by the system. Graphical study of the proposed model has also been done. The suggested methodology finds its application in commercial aviation sector.
Keywords: Helicopter, Precautionary Landing, Fuel – Filter, Clogging, Regenerative Point Technique.
