The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded Able Aerospace with the parts manufacturer approval (PMA) of a new tail rotor fan shaft replacement part for the Bell 407 helicopter. The new PMA is the industry’s only OEM part alternative.

The tail rotor fan shaft (Able part number 4AA-040-320-103) is a component of the Bell tail rotor fan shaft assembly. It replaces Bell part number 407-040-320-103. Combined with Able’s other PMA and repair solutions, this new FAA approval provides operators with a single source for continuing to drive down the cost of Bell 407 maintenance.
