Rotor Blades and Rotor Heads
Averaging 2,400 flight hours per year on our own Chinook rotor blades, Columbia has the experience and equipment to provide a level of service most other maintenance providers can’t. Our full service rotor blade shop is capable of repairing and overhauling both metal and composite rotor blades for a variety of aircraft. Thanks to the use of an Avion balancer, our customers typically get rotor blades back with minimum or no flight tracking adjustments required.

- Forward & Aft Rotor Heads
- Tail Rotor Drive Shafts
- Vertical Shafts
- Flight Control Assemblies
- Synchronization Shafts & Adapter Assemblies
