Narrative

The point is on the central part of the southern shore of Heald Island jutting into Koettlitz Glacier, 7.3 miles northwest of Gandalf Ridge, and approximately 10 miles west of Discovery Glacier. The feature is named by US-ACAN BGN for Lieutenant Commander Robert Joseph Tuttell, a Naval Aviator in Antarctic Development Squadron Six (VXE-6) from November 1983 to February 1986. He flew the ski-equipped LC-130 Hercules aircraft, and was also a Maintenance Functional Check Pilot in the LC-130 aircraft flying numerous check flights on repaired LC-130s that were damaged due to the challenging polar operating conditions. He also flew missions in support of Winter Fly In (WINFLY) in August 1984 and 1985, and was also an experienced pilot in the squadron with a Navy Special Instrument Rating where he was assigned several high profile missions.
