our capabilities

In rotor blade repair (MRB and TRB’s), our technicians have more than 10 year experience on helicopter platforms, both in composite repair as well as engineering and program management. With SPECTO Aerospace you can rely on the following Maintenance, Repair, Overhaul and Upgrade (MRO&U) capabilities:

1. inspection (visual & NDT) and damage assessment

Inspection and repair of composite rotor blades requires specific knowledge of composites and of rotor blade design. In-house inspectors examine the rotor blade visually, by tapping and by using NDI. They determine if there is (in)visible damage or delamination within the structure and they assess the severity of the damage.

 

2. composites repair

Repair of rotor blades requires specific skills to guarantee that strength, aerodynamic shape, weight and balance remain within defined limits after repair. Experienced specialists perform required authorised repairs.

 

3. sealing and painting

Protecting components against environmental conditions in a proper way increases the Mean Time Between Unscheduled Repair. Components are painted in a state of the art facility by experienced paint specialists.

 

4. balancing

Proper balancing of a rotor blade decreases the required number of Rotor Track & Balance (RT&B) flights. SPECTO has advanced balancing equipment to perform span wise as well as cord wise balancing, all according to OEM data or Master Blades.
