Looking for info..........

Hi All,

I'm looking for information on operational parameters—sea state & wind speeds beyond which recovery became impossible—for the Walrus. I'm looking for official FAA data, with reference citations, anything like that.

Any ideas??

Not that I can help either way, but I assume that you mean Fleet Air Arm data as opposed to Federal Aviation Administration - 'cuz I'm pretty sure that a Walrus was never type certificated in the US - so there probably won't be any help coming from the colonials, sorry!
