Tail Rotor on a Helicopter

The tail rotor on a helicopter is located, as its name states, on the tail of the helicopter. Its’ purpose is to prevent the helicopter from spinning the opposite way of the main rotor blades. Imagine having to ride in a helicopter that is continuously spinning in circles, it would not be an as efficient form of transportation. Passengers would be sick or dizzy, and parts of the aircraft could possibly fall off with only one place to go, the ground. This would result in civilian injuries/deaths, along with a lot of property damage. The tail rotor blades counteract the main rotor blades allowing the helicopter to fly straight and be easily controlled by the pilot, especially during maneuvers. It spins horizontally to compensate for the torque created from the main rotor. The placement of the tail rotor placed away from the center of gravity, on the tail, allows for the most effective results.

Not all helicopters have this tail rotor, some rely on the fuselage alone to counteract the torque. The problem with this is that the speed at which the fuselage must spin to counteract the main rotor may result in it getting dislodged and falling off the aircraft. Although this is not a common thing, the tail rotor is a preventative measure to ensure nothing is falling off the aircraft mid-flight.

MRO

Precision and work efficiency is something that many companies invest into to be able to produce at their highest potential. When it comes to maintance on aircraft it requires extreme precision and tedious work on solely one aircraft. Completing normal checkups has been under speculation and has been deemed “old fashion” with the incorporation of a lot of newer aircrafts. The term that mro-network.com has used for older types of review is “A, B, C, D checks.” Checks such as these need to be more efficient when it comes to fleets containing various models.

As newer more modern aircrafts are equipped with new state of the art equipment they require more attention to make sure the software is up to date and running up accordingly. Maintance on these states of the art equipment will no longer be able to have scheduled checkup.

Per a statement from Director of MRO for aviation and Defense at IFS, James Elliot mentions,

The end goal is to reduce aircraft maintenance windows. What used to be called out-of-phase maintenance in the days of ABCD is now standard, maintenance programs are planned with individual tasks in mind.

For these inspections to be more detailed Elliot believes that both the airlines along with the maintance shops need to have a better idea on to what the aircraft contains. With this caliber of information, it will give the maintance an upper hand to have a more strategic approach on to keeping up with an entire fleet regardless of its size.

Software with a component-based view offers significant advantages by getting aviation part numbers and granular detail into each maintenance program. That information should be put into maintenance format, task by task, component by component.

NASA & Rockwell

Supersonic travels have been under speculation for quite some time, although its costly and dangerous precautions. Rockwell Collins and NASA have teamed up to bring in air supersonic more available to a more common ground. Supersonic travels have been accomplished by military jets used for precise missions; Rockwell planes hope to integrate the supersonic speed into airplanes.

Despite the creation of actual airplanes that will be able to with stand traveling at a supersonic speed, pilots need to be trained. The training of pilots will be a two-year process to be able to teach the safeguards and repercussions of traveling at such a high speed.

Traveling at such speeds may cause loud noises and cause other disturbing affects for traveling as close as other commercial planes. The reduction or elimination of these disturbances to the public are a part of NASA & Rockwell’s primary concerns to be able to complete and release their finished product to the public.

Rockwell has invested a lot of time to be able to meet with three different types of space agencies to test and study different aspects of what it might possibly take to execute supersonic traveling. Agencies that focus on architecture of the aircraft, weather data testing and agency for sonic boom avionics display.

Rockwell Collins and NASA have brought forth some of their finest pilots to be able to integrate to create teams that will learn how to manage flying at supersonic speeds.

The aircraft is coming together with the completion of the cockpit completed as of March 2017.

NASA plans to release their demonstration prototype by the name of X-plane by the year 2021.

Senior System engineer at Rockwell Collins, states to be quite proud of how well their work has come along by stating ,” Our research with NASA has been quite successful, as we worked with its sonic boom experts to understand a complex algorithm to develop a cutting edge concept of supersonic flight operations.”

ASAP NSN parts is a prime distributor for Rockwell Collins parts and other premium parts in the industry. All of ASAP NSN parts have been tested and placed under warranty to ensure every order.

Therefore, these two companies together have completed the first test flights for crash-resistant fuel tank (CRFT) designed for the Airbus AS350 light single helicopter family.

The test’s purpose was to help to reconstruct CRFT to obtain the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certifications and to follow an FAA-certified 50ft drop test that proved the tank’s qualifications to combat impact without any outflow, helping to prevent post-crash fires.

Vector Aerospace CRFT programme manager Jeff Booker said: “This milestone is a testament to the team here at Vector, which has been working hard to bring this product to market for our customers. As soon as the drop testing was complete we began the process of installation to move us into this new test phase.”

Two flight test aircrafts, AS350 B2 and AS350 B3 have already been equipped with the new CRFT and they are experiencing ground- testing activities.

Moreover, Onboard Systems is Vector’s new partner in incorporating cargo swing solutions as a adaptable option that can be used with the new crash-resistant fuel tank.
