Whirligig


Table Top Helicopter Track and Balance Trainer

Practice dynamic rotor track and balance in the classroom and eliminate costly on-the-aircraft training. The Whirligig simulates main and tail rotor movement and airframe lateral motion so operators can gain skill and increase confidence in using the Chadwick-Helmuth Vibrex, Vibrex 2000, Model 192A and Model 8500C+ Balancer/Analyzer without the cost, noise and pressures of the flightline environment.

The Whirligig operates on 110 VAC power and is supplied with a carrying case, instruction manual and 2, 3 and 4 blade main rotor fixtures (a 5 blade fixture is available). The tail rotor can also be configured to suit particular training needs. The rotor fixtures have moveable tip targets, studs for weight additions and other features that simulate actual helicopter rotors.

A 28 VDC connector is provided to power the Vibrex, Model 192A and Model 8500C+ Balancer/Analyzer as well as the Model 11A Calibrator for Balancer/Analyzers.

The Whirligig can pay for itself in a few training sessions by eliminating flight hours and fuel consumption and giving operators unlimited hands-on experience in a classroom environment.
