Agusta 139'S Grounded?

Recommended Posts

  • 3 months later...

They have completely redesigned the blade to include a wrap around strip (titanium?) to prevent the blades from departing at the root. The 2 incidents (one in Hong Kong the other Brazil) were too similar to deny a t/r design flaw and react to a problem. The Agusta factory has ramped up t/r blade production and it is my understanding that all operators have enough blades once again. A lot of time on the ground waiting for blades in the mean time! but at least the problem was acknowledged.


New blades should be available by 3rd quarter of 2012??....if all goes according to plan.
