New FAA Approval Reduces Downtime for LORD Corporation Customers


LORD Corporation recently received the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Part Manufacturer Approval (PMA) for its enhanced Main Drive-shaft Transmission Boot for Bell 412HP and 412EP helicopter platforms. Customers using PMA parts can reduce their aircraft-on-ground time and save 35 percent on maintenance costs over a new purchase from the original manufacturer.


“We are thrilled to offer this PMA to the marketplace because it allows operators to reduce costs without compromising on safety,” said Rodolphe Leroy, LORD Corporation Manager of Global Sales, Business Development and Marketing. “With parts in stock and the availability to ship globally, there is minimal downtime for the customer.”


LORD uses an elastomeric material that provides exceptional coupling lubricant resistance resulting in extended part-life and ultimately more time in the air. The elastomer is integrated into the main driveshaft transmission boot and protects the drive shaft couplings from dirt, water, oil and other contaminants. The


specially formulated elastomer maintains mechanical properties with little to no degradation at elevated temperatures, as well as superior metal surface coatings for increased corrosion protection.


This PMA program meets or exceeds the Bell Component Repair and Overhaul Maintenance Program’s suggested removal period of 1,200 hours. LORD’s program also includes a recycling option, allowing users to participate in a swift and more environmentally preferred option for disposal.

Frasca Named Sub for TH-57 Aircrew Training Contract


Frasca International, Inc. (Frasca) has been named subcontractor for the Navy TH-57 Aircrew Training Services (ATS) Contract. The prime contract, which was awarded by the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) to FlightSafety Services Corporation, includes contract instructional services (CIS), contractor operations & maintenance services (COMS) and flight simulation training devices (FSTDs) for CNATRA.


As subcontractor, Frasca will provide 10 FSTDs as part of the ground based training systems (GBTS) for the TH-57 helicopter that will be used for initial rotary- wing training at NAS Whiting Field. The Frasca-built training systems will include seven Level 7 TH-57 FTDs and three Level 6 TH-57 FTDs.


The Level 7 FTDs will feature Frasca’s Motion Cueing System (FMCS™), which was designed specifically for rotorcraft simulation, and a 240° x 70° field of view


30 Sept/Oct 2018


The Level 6 FTDs will feature a 180° x 40° field of view display system and a vibration system. All 10 devices will include a Frasca debrief station for after action review (AAR) and to enhance the aviators’ learning and training experience. There will also be one remote central control station where personnel can act as an instructor or ATC controller for any or all of the FTDs.


The FTDs will all be reconfigurable between the Bravo and Charlie versions of the TH-57. They will also be fully enclosed for NVG training capability and all 10 FTDs will be networked to create a realistic synthetic training environment for


real-world training scenarios and formation flying.


The devices will include Frasca’a SimAssist™ instruction tool and Blade Element Modeling for edge-of-envelope flight maneuvers including retreating blade stall, vortex ring, loss of trail rotor effectiveness and settling with power.


Aechelon Technology will provide all of the Image Generators in support of this program. Aechelon Technology will supply its new pC-NOVA™ (v8) Image Generator featuring Aechelon’s pC-NOVA software- based runtime engine. Aechelon will also provide high-fidelity, multi-spectral visual and sensor databases, 3D moving models, and a variety of airfields.
