From Tip to Tail: Precision HeliParts Delivers

Posted by Admin

Whether it’s something routine, like overhauling one of its many starter generators, or a more urgent need, like replacing an N1 tach indicator that just quit on a helicopter stuck out in the field, when All American Aviation needs a part they contact Precision HeliParts (PHP). There is a tongue-in-cheek saying that “A helicopter is 5,000 moving parts all trying to do you bodily harm!” Of course, I strongly disagree with the latter part of that statement. However, since every helicopter is indeed made up of thousands of parts, the scenarios above play out hundreds of times every day in a variety of ways all over the world. Fortunately, for thousands of operators in over 60 countries, PHP is part of their solution. [Read More...]

CS3 - Raising the Bar on Customer Support: How Airbus Does It!

Posted by Admin

CS3 - Raising the Bar on Customer Support: How Airbus Does It! Article, Photos & Video by Lyn Burks No one likes a helicopter that is a “hangar pig”—a helicopter that seemingly sits in the hangar broken more often than flying. As a person who has owned several helicopters as a part of my business, I can testify that downtime equals lost dollars. [Read More...]

The Leading Edge of Training Technology –The CAE Experience

Posted by Admin

The Leading Edge of Training Technology –The CAE Experience Article, photos & video by Lyn Burks Offshore 100 miles, atop an 80-foot oilrig helideck I perform a pre-takeoff check: fuel levers in direct, both throttles in fly, fire t-handles are forward. Scanning down the instrument panel I see that my temps and pressures are in the green and there are no warnings or caution lights blinking at me. Moving across the center console, I ensure that my stick trims and autopilots are on, and there are no DECU (digital engine control unit) faults. Next, I pull the Sikorsky S76C+ into a stable hover, turn the nose into the wind, and do a power check. The torque gage reads 68 percent — life is good. [Read More...]

Paradigm Aerospace Corporation - Paradigm Shift

Posted by Admin

One of the buzzwords used on TV by the politicians and talking heads is the word “paradigm.” In fact, using the word in a sentence over a beer with buddies may cause their impression of your IQ to go up a couple points. We commonly hear the pundits say things like, “It’s the new paradigm” or “The paradigm has shifted.” Looking closer at the word paradigm, we see it means “a pattern of something; a model.” Paradigm Aerospace Corporation (PAC) has been in the helicopter business since 1976. Given their longstanding reputation as a “model” for quality, having the word paradigm as part of their name nearly four decades later almost seems prophetic. [Read More...]

A League of Their Own – Southeast Aerospace

Posted by Admin

Back in 2011, an interesting movie was released named Moneyball. The movie was based on the story of Oakland A’s general manager, Billy Beane. His former General Manager (GM), Sandy Alderson, mentored him in the art of sabermetrics (statistical analysis). In turn, Beane successfully assembled a lower-budget team based on emerging prospects and undervalued veterans that consistently performed. Most other Major League Baseball teams during this time were interested in high-priced superstars that may or may not have consistently produced. One theme I noticed throughout the movie was consistent, well placed singles beat a few home runs every time. [Read More...]

Aviation Specialties Unlimited : Night Vision - Business Vision

Posted by Admin

Aviation Specialties Unlimited Night Vision – Business Vision Article, Photos & Video by Lyn Burks Helicopter flight training wearing Night Vision Goggles (NVG) is as exciting and interesting as any other new skill or technique that can be learned in a helicopter. It’s right up there with learning touchdown autorotations! The one and only buzzkill is that, as the name of the device suggests, you must be using them at night. It’s all fun and games --- until your flight-training block is from 0200 – 0400. [Read More...]

White Hot: Adding a Thermal View with EVS

Posted by Admin

White Hot: Adding a Thermal View with EVS By Rick Adams I was driving on the turnpike through western Massachusetts a number of years back, enroute to Boston, and the fog was thick. I should have pulled off and waited for better conditions, but I had a hotel reservation for that night and appointments the next morning. So I followed the only visual aids I had – the stripes on the side of the road and the taillights of the car in front of me. If the car ahead had gone off a cliff, well … [Read More...]
