101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Gold Book

Sheet1

Notes:        
         
1. Without rucksacks the UH-60L ACL is 20 seats out and 11 seats in. With rucksacks the        
UH-60L ACL is 18 seats out and 11 seats in. On all slingloads, room must be made for the crew        
chief to observe the load. Rifle companies should not plan to air assault more than 100 soldiers (w/o        
rucks) per seats-out light serial. Given our field strengths, itís reasonable to train and plan that way.        
         
2. ACL for UH60L with external loads is based on the weight of the specific load, not to exceed a        
total of 8,500 lbs (including passengers and internal load). To exceed this may reduce the ability of        
the aircraft to meet range requirements (require fuel to be consumed before takeoff).        
         
3. The CH-47D ACL with rucks is 60 seats out and 30 seats in.        
         
         
         
         
  The following charts make adjustments on UH60L lift capabilities for      
increased temperature (no change for CH47 lift capabilities):
