The VHA 206B main rotor blades use the same carbon fiber materials and construction methods similar to the company’s successful 206B/L tail rotor blades, which have been available as an STC/PMA aftermarket component since 2009. Both blades feature carbon fiber skin and spars, an efficient NASA-designed laminar-flow airfoil, and tapered tip. The 206B main rotor blade also contains stainless steel and nickel abrasion strips that cover the entire length of the blade for erosion and lightning strike protection. A single trim tab facilitates the track-and-balancing process. The VHA blades use the identical installation configuration as the OEM blades, allowing direct replacement without hub modification.
