General Information

Parking 2-bladed Bell Medium aircraft outside represents a risk of damage to blades, rotor mast and surrounding equipment in the event that wind, rotorwash or jetwash causes the blades to rotate or teeter into contact. Typical rotor tie down options can be very difficult to install without steps or ladders and must be tied to aircraft components (like crosstubes, skids or tailbooms). The DART main rotor tie down offers a custom solution to 205 & 212 operators including the tie down strap which can be attached by a mechanic with both feet on the ground without tools and a lightweight, permanently installed bracket on the tailboom. The tie-down is easily secured the bracket with a carabiner (no knots required).
