Paravion has expanded its series of Blade Folding Kits to accommodate the Agusta A109 and A119 series aircraft. This unique design makes it convenient for storing aircraft with more than two M/R blades in the same space as that used by aircraft with two M/R blades. Paravion, in coordination with the aircraft manufacturer, has put together a kit that includes all tools needed to remove the pins and effectively fold this 4 blade system into a configuration of two blades forward and two blades aft. The STC approved mounting provisions for the blade folding supports are flush with the aircraft skin and are designed to be almost unnoticeable. All equipment is quick connect/disconnect design and folds for easy storage. The procedure of folding and unfolding the blades can be accomplished by two persons in under 15 minutes.
Typical installation labor time is 8 tech-hours for fixed provisions.
This kit is applicable for the Agusta A109A, A109AII, A109C, A109Cmax, A109K2, A109E, A109S, A119, and A119MKII models.
