LIVERMORE, Calif. Feb. 24, 2014 – Aero Precision, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced today a new partnership agreement with McNally Industries, a McNally Group company. McNally Industries supports the aviation community by designing and manufacturing ground support equipment for rotary wing aircraft.
Aero Precision will represent the RUPHIS (Rotor Universal Positioning and Handling Integrated System) Main Rotor Blade installation and removal system at many domestic and international aviation conferences and expositions.
The RUPHIS system is able to accommodate variants of the Black Hawk, Apache, S-70 and S-92 model helicopters (with a CH-47 Chinook solution under development). The blade clamp provides benefits in personnel safety and time savings, as well as well as added protection to the aircraft. The systems slim design allows the direct placement of the blades into GSE holding carts to reduce handling and improve turnaround time.
The RUPHIS Blade Clamp will be on display during the upcoming 2014 Heli-Expo at Aero Precision's Booth #4006, February 24–27, 2014 at the Anaheim Convention Center in California.
