FROM LEGACY TO LEGENDARY
ERICKSON'S COMPOSITE MAIN ROTOR BLADES
Several years ago Erickson was faced with a dire situation for its flagship platform, the S-64: Create more main rotor blades or eventually ground the entire S-64 fleet. Over time these blades wore out due to the high demand for flight hours of the uniquely-capable heavy lifting S-64. Then came the eventual retirement of the old blades — and the opportunity to engineer a new product that would enhance the S-64 legacy fleet.
Erickson tackles the most complex composite aerostructures. Bring your challenging missions to us for an out-of-the-box solution.
