NEW Composite Tail Rotor Blades:

New to the market, composite tail rotor blades available for Bell 206 series helicopters:

The AMT-206-1 composite tail rotor blade is a direct replacement for Bell 206A and 206B series helicopter tail rotor blades.

The AMT-206-1 tail rotor blade (TRB) has a non-symmetrical airfoil section and incorporates a swept tip. The TRB is primarily fabricate from uni-directional Graphite (carbon fibre) and Aramid (Kevlar™) continuous fibres suspended in an epoxy matrix and is fitted with a nickel abrasion strip on the leading edge. The abrasion strip is bonded on using a urethane adhesive.

The AMT-206-1 composite tail rotor blades offer a 30% cost advantage with twice the life over the standard 206 tail rotor blades. The blades also offer a higher margin of safety due to their increased strength and higher thrust for an equivalent power setting as well as a very substantial noise reduction which will be very popular for helicopter operators that fly in and around noise sensitive environments such as national parks and built up areas.

AMT-206-1 T/R Blade Features:

  • 5,000-hour time life, twice the life of the standard OEM blade
  • 30% lower hourly operating costs compared to OEM blades
  • Higher margin of safety due to increased strength
  • Corrosion resistant and impervious to saltwater
  • Replaceable bushings and abrasion strips
  • Significant noise reduction, 68% reduction over OEM Blades
  • Improved ground clearance
  • Tested for over 51 million cycles

The AMT-206-1 composite blade is a life limited, flight critical component and as such it is necessary to track its service history. This is accomplished by the use of a Blade Log CTRB-F19 (History Card) supplied with the blade by A.M.T. Helicopters Pty Ltd at the initial time of purchase.
