HELICOPTER MAINTENANCE

Timely and competent maintenance of helicopters is the main condition for safety of flights. Air transport should be regularly tested for technical compliance with officially established norms and standards of airworthiness.

Airworthiness is verified within certain time frame (e.g. once a year) and after certain number of flight hours performed by a particular aircraft. Helicopter working resource is determined by its manufacturer and indicated in the documentation for each helicopter. After working resource is over, mandatory maintenance work or replacement of specific parts should take place. In particular, Robinson R44 helicopters require maintenance works every 50 flight hours. These works include replacement of expendable materials and technical fluids, examination of the basic units and devices, and other highly specialized works. Apart from that, if a helicopter hasn’t been used for a long time it requires extensive check before the first flight. And even if an aircraft is actively used, before each flight one must inspect the board, check the fluid levels and amount of fuel, and if necessary refuel the  helicopter.

Specialists in the first Belarusian professional Helicopter Club AviA-100 have considerable experience in servicing Robinson helicopters that is supported by all necessary certificates, licenses, and approvals for such work. In addition, AviA-100 has a heated hangar for maintenance and repair works which meets the respective regulations for this type of premises.

BASE FOR HELICOPTERS

Each helicopter requires a ground for basing, storing, and takeoff. Helicopter owners in Belarus have two choices for this kind of site:

  1. to set up a helipad on their own territory, for example, country estate; 
  2. to rent the space for helicopter storage in Helicopter Club AviA-100. 

Each of these options has its advantages. However, it is important to remember that a personal heliport must comply with a number of technical and other requirements, adopted in the Republic of Belarus. These standards define the size of the site (at least 35×35m), its location (a certain distance from various other sites) and other nuances. Apart from that, for some helicopters manufacturer requires special conditions for storage or repair works (obligatory use of covers, cool box, heated hangar). And most importantly, any helipad must be not only constructed but also registered what means collecting a large set of documents. Only after that it is possible to base and use an aircraft legally. In most cases, helicopter owners prefer to use the services of the Club and keep the machine in AviA-100, on the airfield Borovaya near Minsk. This is convenient because the Club has already created all the necessary conditions for helicopter storage and use. This is where the spare parts, expendable materials, and aviation fuel are also stored. And most importantly this is where highly professional pilots and technicians work; on-site they can carry out scheduled maintenance works or conduct necessary checks before flight and refuel an aircraft without owner's presence. A helicopter based in AviA-100 Club can be brought to any location following owner's request. It can also be fully prepared to takeoff from Borovaya by the requested time of ower's arrival.

It is also possible to sign additional agreement with AviA-100 Club and lease a private helicopter which is not in frequent use to the Club for commercial use. It will not only significantly reduce the cost of operation and maintenance but also can bring the owner of the aircraft additional income.
