Used extensively on all modern helicopters, elastomeric components are one of the main reasons for the vast improvements in performance and reliability these new aircraft exhibit. These components use leading edge technologies not always well understood by maintenance personnel and pilots, even though they are called upon to inspect them on a regular basis. Our experience has shown that too often, parts are removed prematurely due to a misunderstanding of the construction and workings of these complex components.
This webinar explains the construction, function, maintenance and the inspection of these various types of components. This session is tailored to helicopter maintenance technicians but also benefits pilots, helping them with their daily inspections.
What You Will Learn:
- Main types of elastomeric components
- How you can help them last longer and perform optimally
- How to inspect them and make sure you do not remove them prematurely
- How to recognize subtle signs of wear and deterioration
