Tail Rotor Problems at NH-90

Tail Rotor Problems at NH-90 18 October, 2019

The industry recently pointed out that tail rotor problems can be encountered in the multi-purpose helicopter NH-90.

The Bundeswehr and industry are working together to find a solution. The tail rotor blades on all NH-90 delivered before 2018 are being inspected.

All affected helicopters will be checked. The material incident will limit the operational readiness of the NH-90 over the next few weeks.

The NH-90 helicopters delivered after 2018 do not require inspection or modification since they were fitted with a new component during their original assembly.
