The present work outlines a short review of available references and technical papers on the flight dynamics of a helicopter carrying a suspended load. A simplified but comprehensive model for helicopter and external suspended load, based on the linear superposition of effects, is defined. The coherence of the external load modal response and of the helicopter response to control input is verified through available reference data. Finally, the impact of the slung load on the overall system dynamic stability, on the helicopter response to control input and on flight qualities is assessed.
