What Is Transport Canada Thinking?

Recommended Posts

Just curious, but why did they use a big rubber band to run the hydraulics? Why wasn't it attached to a component that is pretty much fool proof, like the 206 series?

The question isn't why, the question is how did they ever get it certified? There are however similar examples all over the aviation world. A couple that come quickly to mind, dual magnetos on a single drive, Torque limiting an aircraft (why not be able to pull the guts out of it and do an overtorque inspection instead of hauling a wreck off the hill). I know this is a little off topic but if you have been following this site recentyl you will find thats a bit of a norm now.

 

Stay safe :up:

Ya am thinking that we don't need to get into a contest on engineering as there are more holes in each companies engineering ideas than a huey that spent two years in vietnam.

that rubber band has a pretty phenominal tensile strength. And an equally impressive friction co-efficient.....when maintained properly (please note this....it is all important)
