It has been a busy month at Aircrane.
S61-BSF was in the Arctic Supporting the Canadian Military and spent the month working out of Resolute Bay, Nunavut moving everything from people, to snow mobiles, to dog sleds.
The highest temperature for the day was a bomby minus 33 degrees. A Herman Nelson heater (pictured left) was used to warm up the interior of the helicopter and preheat the transmission prior to starting the machine so that there would be no damage to the seals and bearings with the oil that becomes too thick from the sub zero weather.
The structures team has also been busy working on a S61 Pylon that we have exchanged with one of our customers in Afghanistan. Coulson Aircrane is one of the leaders in S61 Structural Repairs and Exchanges and we support the S61 fleet all over the world.
The operations in Afghanistan have significantly changed the industry and we have been focusing on engineering new products to improve uptime and reliability. All of the projects we are working on are built in a 3D Cad Program and the parts are all cut on our CnC Router Table to improve accuracy and repeatability. We are taking the S61 into the digital age!
