Paravion Technology, Inc. Solves Issue of Transporting Helicopter Wheels by Offering Compact Ground Handling Wheels Product Line

Compact Ground Handling Wheels Solve Issue of Transporting Wheels in Aircraft

The CGHW-100 kit is a pair of compact hydraulic ground handling wheels which easily stow in a small area of the baggage compartment or other storage area during flights. They are quick and simple to use in the situation of an unplanned landing, weather forced landing at a remote airport, or landing at an airport with no helicopter ground handling equipment. They come in a rolling storage bag, are intended for smooth surfaces, and weigh approximately 50 lbs.

Finally, there is a solution for transporting rotorcraft ground handling wheels in the aircraft during flights. The compact ground handling wheels are available for the Airbus (Eurocopter) AS350/355 rotorcraft, in addition to the Bell 206L/407 rotorcraft.

Pricing for the complete kit, including storage bag, is $4450.00 USD.

Paravion Technology, Inc. Announces STC for Bell 429 Blade Fold Kit

STC eases storage requirements for Bell’s latest helicopter.

Paravion Technology, Inc. announced that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) had issued an STC (Supplemental Type Certificate) for its Blade Fold Kit for Bell 429 helicopters. With the fixed provisions installed, owners and operators can store their aircraft in space limited areas, such as small, off-site hangars and aboard ocean-going vessels.

The kit includes a set of permanently installed provisions and a set of forward and aft blade supports. To fold the blades, quick-release pins are inserted into the fixed provisions and the supports are then attached to the pins and raised to move the fore and aft blades off of their droop stops. The inboard expandable blade bolts of the supported blades are then removed and the tail rotor is used to rotate the other two main rotor blades into position. The rotated blades are then secured by the blade supports. The whole operation can be completed in under 20 minutes by two people.
