The risk of tail boom separation due to extreme structural fatigue placed on the tail boom attach points of the Huey helicopter presents a significant safety concern to operators of this timeworn aircraft.

Recently, the FAA issued a Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin (SAIB SW-18-29) requiring repetitive 100-hour inspections of all tail boom and fuselage attach structures and bolts for the UH-1H and other model variants.

StandardAero’s FAA approved kit solution directly addresses this issue, with a replacement upper left hand Longeron, as well as reinforced steel fittings.

Aircraft with this kit solution installed are safer to operate, giving you peace of mind while performing the strenuous missions you’ve come to rely on it for. With the full FAA STC SR00267SE solution installed, operators can also maximize their operational performance by taking advantage of increased tail rotor thrust (1,256 lb limit compared to the original 1,060 lb limit).

Our proven STC solution is available now for installation in the factory or in the field.
