Composite 206 tail rotor blade takes advantage of high-tech materials, a more efficient airfoil design, and advanced construction techniques to deliver great performance at double the life of current blades on the market. The composite tail rotor blade features a carbon fiber spar and skins, titanitum root fitting, and a nickel abrasion strip, resulting in a lighter but stronger rotor blade.

Features:

  • 5,000-hour life (double the life of the OEM blade)
  • New, more efficient airfoil design and profile
  • No modification to tail rotor hub needed for installation
  • Nickel abrasion strip reduces leading edge wear
  • Corrosion-resistant composite blade with carbon fiber spar and skin, and titanium root fitting
  • New pitch bearing design
  • 40% reduction in noise

Fatigue Test:

Per FAA requirements, fatigue testing on the 206 tail rotor blade. The custom-designed fatigue test fixture pulled, pushed and twisted the blades to simulate thousands of ground-air-ground cycles. The results of the fatigue test allowed the tail rotor blade an extended life of 5,000 hours, double the life of the OEM blade.

Documents:

All blades will be delivered with the Instruction for Continued Airworthiness (ICA), permissive statement, and if requested a 8130-3.

Warranty:

The manufacturer offers a three year warranty against manufacturing and material defects on its composite tail rotor blades. The warranty excludes damage due to erosion.
