Innovation Award 2018: Distinction


Safety and reliability in flight operations

Zoerkler Gears GmbH & Co KG is starting with an innovative idea: 

the simulation of multidirectional loads during the flight operation of a helicopter tail gear

The development of this innovative load unit makes it possible to carry out test bench trials as close as possible to real flight conditions, in order to minimise the risk during flight testing already by in-house testing. It took about one year from the start of the design to the first tests.  Today, Zoerklers system provides more safety and reliability in flight operations thanks to particularly realistic test results.
