VFR Transponder Test
Most of our helicopter customers operate their aircraft in VFR Airspace only. However, they are very concerned with the accuracy of their Airspeed Indicator, Altimeter and Altitude Encoder. Many of our helicoptor operators tell us that they do not wish to have their aircraft certified IFR but rather they ask us to benchmark the Airspeed Indicator and Altitude Encoder.
We have developed a flate rate service just for helicoptor operators. We can perform just a VFR Inspection (testing of the Transponder only) if you wish.
Or if you perfer, we will test the entire Pitot and Static System.
This test includes leak testing the Pitot and Static System, Transponder to Encoder Data Correlation Tests (ATC Altitude Read-Out) and Altimeter and Airspeed Indicator Accuracy Tests.
We will notify you immediatly if we find any discrepancies and in most cases we can either fix the problems while we are at your hangar or if components need to be sent out for repair we can get them off to our FAA authorized and approved vendors and re-installed back into your aircraft with speed and efficiency.
We call this Inspection The Heli-Works and it starts at $275.00 (Mode S Transponders add $50.00).
We will still provide a VFR certification for the aircraft and you will have the peace of mind of knowing that the aircraft has been tested to IFR standards.
