Bell Helicopter Parts

Bell Helicopter Parts

Bell Helicopter is the most flown rotor wing aircraft in the world. Bell Aircraft Corporation was founded in 1935 in Buffalo New York. Their focus at that time was creating a fighter aircraft. Like many other department of defense contractors, they try and broaden their portfolio to not just depend on government contracts. Therefor later in 1941 they expanded their business base to their first full size helicopter, which took its first flight in 1942.

Bell was ultimately acquired by Textron, which created three different divisions in the company. Bell Aircraft Corporation known for the helicopters, was eventually rebranded to Bell Helicopter Textron.

Bell Helicopter Parts have become one of the most sought after parts in the aerospace and defense industry.  Many helicopter owners are left with extremely long lead times before parts become available to them. During the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, the lead time on some parts were as long as 500+ days.

With the high demand for Bell parts, many distributors have set their sights on securing as many parts as they can store. With a simple google search, we found several aircraft part distributors that focus on Bell Helicopter Parts.

We also found AeroBase Group, they have a section on their website that categorizes their parts by 2 blade, 4 blade, and military helicopters. https://aerobasegroup.com/bell-helicopter-parts/

We asked them to provide us a list of the parts they see in high demand, and we have provided that here below.

National Stock Numbers make supplying goods easier

National Stock Numbers make supplying goods easier

If you’ve ever purchased anything, you’ve seen a numbers on it that identify the item (a bar code). There is something similar that applies to items that are not used by the general public: National Stock Numbers. This relatively new concept is an important way to identify and obtain important items.

National Stock Numbers are one of the many things to come out of World War Two. With all the complications that were arising from trying to get an item that might be known by a dozen or more names, it was decided that an easier way to obtain these items was needed. That’s when these numbers were created. Legislation was introduced in the early 1950s to put this idea into action.

Blind Rivet – NSN 5320-01-597-4852

5320-01-597-4852 – Rivet Blind

Each National Stock Number is made up of several parts, much like other ID methods, all designed to give more information about the particular item. This includes the country or origin, manufacturer, and product specs/description. While the first two parts of the number can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer—or country to country—the last few numbers are the same for each product. For example, light bulbs will have the last part, or washers, etc. Other items that fall into this category are wire springs, communication equipment, heating components, and much more.

These convenient numbers are used by all Governments and are usually assigned upon the invention of a new part, weapon, or other item that will be used by Federal agencies or Military Services. They are also used to identify items that need to be disposed of in specific ways to ensure the safety of the environment and human health.

These numbers have made certain agencies run in a more efficient manner, while also providing transparency and safety of information. It also flags duplicate items to avoid waste.

F-16 Fighting Falcon

f16

The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine multirole fighter aircraft and it was originally created for the United States Air Force. Initially it was designed as an air superiority day fighter and it has now evolved into a highly successfully all-weather multi purpose aircraft. Production for the Falcon was approved in 1976 and over 4,500 aircrafts were built since then. Originally produced by General Dynamics, the manufacturing rights were given to Lockheed Martin when General Dynamics sold their business. Although they are no longer being purchased by the United States Air Force, improved versions of the Falcon are still being built for export customers.

falcon

The Fighting Falcon has several key features that lead to its exceptional service. Some of these features include a side-mounted control stick to allow for better maneuvering, a frameless bubble canopy for better visibility, and the first recorded use of a relaxed static stability flight, which is used to make it a nimble aircraft. Inside of the F-16, there is a M61 Vulcan cannon and eleven locations for mounting weapons and other missing equipment. Along with active duty in the USAF and the Air National Guard, the Fighting Falcon has also been known to serve in the air forces of 25 other countries.

Epoxy Adhesives

epoxy-adhesive Epoxy is a common name for a strong type of adhesive used for sticking things together and covering surfaces, usually two resins that need to be mixed together before use. Epoxy adhesives are the better choice when performing in heat and chemical resistance than other common adhesives. Epoxies have high melting and boiling points, which makes it useful as a solver as well. One may find popular two-part epoxy adhesives for the home, workplace or hobby activities in various stores ranging in a wide selection of properties. There are several properties to these epoxies including slow or fast curing time, waterproof or water-resistant, opaque or clear and flexible or rigid. Although many people believe that all epoxies are waterproof, many of them are not recommended to be underwater for the long-term. The shelf life for unmixed two-part epoxies is long and there are many reports of epoxies sitting idly for decades and still being used successfully. However, the ones more commonly seen in stores have a one to two year shelf life as published by the product specifications. Epoxy adhesives are an important part of the “structural adhesives” or “engineering adhesives” class. These are high performing adhesives that can be seen in the construction of aircrafts, cars, boats, skis and other applications that require high strength bonds. The adhesives can be developed to fit almost any application and can be used on wood, metal, glass and even some plastics. It is better for these types of epoxies to be cured with heat, as they will be more heat and chemical resistant than ones that are cured at room temperature. Two part epoxy coatings were made specifically for heavy duty service and dry quickly to provide a tough, protective coating with great hardness. The two part epoxies are usually used industrial and automotive applications because they are more heat resistant than other paints. One of the cons to the epoxy paints would be their deterioration due to UV exposure.
