Aero maintenance complete Robinson R44 Raven 2200hr/12 year overhaul including fitment of fuel bladder tanks. The project took 12 weeks to complete including a full strip and respray.

Once the helicopter arrives in the hangar it is totally stripped right down to the basic cabin area. It is then placed on a special fixture to allow the landing gear and frames to be paint stripped and sent for NDT. The engine is sent for overhaul.

Meanwhile the remaining structure and components that are not due for replacement are inspected. In this case the paint was removed and the areas of corrosion treated. Once we have the frames and undercarriage back we can start the rebuild process. The fuel bladder tanks are put in position, adjusted for correct fit and drilled in position.

The replacement components direct from RHC are then fitted along with the freshly overhauled engine. Once we have the aircraft assembled rigging can take place.

With The aircraft receives its new coat of paint followed by reweighing. Its then outside for ground runs, dynamic tail and fanwheel balancing. Once we are satisfied everything is as it should be then we go on a maiden flight for main rotor balancing, handling and performance checks.

On completion of this and subject to the owners acceptance the heli goes on its way for another 2200 hours or 12 years!.
