New System Will Detect Possible Problems

By Staff Writer | September 26, 2007

ACROHELIPRO has signed an agreement with Intelligent Automation Corp. to develop a new supplemental type certificate for the installation of the corporation’s new vibration monitoring system. The system was developed for installation on Era Helicopters fleet of American Eurocopter AS350s and AgustaWestland A119s. The system provides a means of automatic detection and identification of mechanical faults and flight data monitoring for use in the Flight Operations Quality Assurance program and Helicopter Operational Monitoring program at a lower cost and weight than similar systems. The system monitors the main rotor system, engines, gearboxes, tail rotor drive system, and accessories, and interfaces with a portable computer for “at-aircraft” fault determination and maintenance recommendations.
