ACROHELIPRO Receives Manufacturing Approval for S-76 Exhaust Ejectors

December 11, 2007 – ACROHELIPRO Global Services Inc. (ACROHELIPRO), a subsidiary of Vector Aerospace Corporation, announces Transport Canada Certification Authority (Manufacturing Approval) for an improved version of the Sikorsky S76A-model exhaust ejector assembly.

Owen Tinney, Manager-New Manufacturing says “we are pleased to offer an improved alternative to the original equipment installations. Manufactured under STC # SH90-13, the all-new S76A model ejector surpasses original installation equipment in customer-critical areas of durability, reparability, price and warranty.”

Aerodynamically and functionally comparable to OEM design, ACROHELIPRO’s ejector is a direct replacement for part number: 76305-007003-043/044.

Tinney continues, explaining the OEM exhaust ejector is fabricated via furnace brazing and resistance-welding processes, whereas the newly-approved ACROHELIPRO version utilizes riveted louvers combined with selective resistance-welded components, press-formed end details, and thicker materials in crack prone areas. These measures offer benefits such as greatly reduced warping, cracking, and material liberation commonly caused by thermal cycling. Improved reparability is achieved through riveted detail construction and available replacement parts that are fabricated by ACROHELIPRO.
