Importance of Helicopter Parts

A helicopter, much like any commercial aircraft, is a complex structure made up of thousands of different parts, many of which you can find on our inventory list here at ASAP Aerospace. Here we will go over a brief outline of the significant helicopter parts that can ensure its flights. These are the parts that almost always are taken in for routine maintenance so as to ensure a safe operation. For more information on helicopter parts, read on below. 

In a helicopter, there are two types of engines that the helicopter runs on. Those are the reciprocating engine and the turbine engine. The former generates power by using one or more piston to convert pressure into a rotating source. Another important component is the tail rotor. As indicated in the name, the tail rotor can be located toward the end of the helicopter and its primary job is to counteract the effect of torque. If it were not for the tail rotor the helicopter would spin in the direction opposite the main rotor. Along with the tail rotor is the main rotor part. The main rotor is one of the most important part of the helicopter because it enables the pilot to make specific turns, it allows the pilot to change altitudes and make lateral movements. With the main rotor, the pilot is sometimes (depending on the equipment itself) able to communicate using the controls linked to the swash.

Finally, the cockpit acts as the central control unit of the helicopter. From there, all activity of the helicopter is determined. The pilot will sit inside of the cockpit alongside the co-pilot. In the cockpit, there are four main controls that the pilot must use while flying, those being the collective, anti-torque pedals, cyclic, and throttle.
