How Helicopter Maintenance Has Changed Over the Years

MRO maintenance
The first successful helicopter flight occurred in 1939 by Russian-American aviation pioneer Igor Sikorsky. Sikorsky’s helicopter design comprised of a main rotor and tail rotor. This design was the inspiration for all future helicopter designs and earned Sikorsky the title “the father of helicopters.”

As expected, the earliest helicopters were quite simple compared to those today. Early variations of the modern-day helicopter were equipped with skids instead of landing gear, open cockpits, and unaired fuselage sections. These helicopters were known to be very shaky and often unreliable. Now, helicopters are just as equipped as airplanes, with retractable landing gear and full instrumentation and navigation equipment.

Over the years, massive advancements in the design of the helicopter has resulted in major modifications in helicopter maintenance. Currently, the United States spends over $1 billion on helicopter maintenance each decade. Continue reading “How Helicopter Maintenance Has Changed Over the Years”
