Cooperation with Fokker Aerostructures continues


Simultaneously with proceeding tests of composite rudder for Gulfstream G650 the new tests for Fokker Aerostructures were performed in VZLU’s Strength of Structures Department. During 18th and 19th October several bird impacts against the bubble window installed to the sliding door of NH 90 helicopter were realized. The tests were prepared and executed in accordance with CS 29 Certification Specifications for Large Rotorcraft and in a very short time. High speed cameras for shot recording were used and other dynamic characteristics were measured.
