A landing gear undergoes “high-flying” tests

Hélicoptère

Client : Mecaer America

Mecaer America Inc. is an aeronautics company in Québec specializing in the design and manufacture of landing gears for helicopters and light aircraft. Operating in an industry where safety is paramount, Mecaer ensures that every part sold meets the highest industry standards. They do this by using CRIQ’s ISO 17025 and ILAC MRA accredited laboratories to perform mechanical, climatic, resistance, and fatigue tests.

The tests CRIQ performed on the helicopter landing gear required a custom design that could simulate four fatigue lives, the equivalent of 200,000 flights using the landing gear on this six-ton twin-engine helicopter. In total, nearly 28 million loading steps were performed over the 11 months of this “high-flying” project!

 

- CRIQ ensures the quality and reliability of our equipment.
