SAFER BY DESIGN

Improving safety through innovation

Transmission Fluid Change

REACTION DRIVE ELIMINATES WEIGHT AND COMPLEXITY  

Removes transmission and tail rotor from the aircraft reducing weight and maintenance

GREATLY REDUCED PARTS COUNT AND POINTS OF FAILURE

Substantially lower costs of maintenance and total cost of ownership

IMPROVED AUTO ROTATION  

The high inertia power system allows more time to respond to loss of power and delays drop in rotor speed

MITIGATE EFFECTS OF VORTEX RING STATE

Jet thrust exits the power system just above the rotor blades which interferes with vortex formation and continuously supplies a large volume of air from the outlet nozzle that travels outward radially above the portion of the rotor disk that is producing the greatest lift for the aircraft.
