S-61 Composite Main Rotor Blades
Since FAA certification in 2003, over 1,000 Carson Main Rotor Blades have been manufactured and are being used worldwide by governments, commercial operators and Marine One, the helicopter used by the President of the United States.
Our blades result in a 1,700 lb thrust increase in hover, 17 kt. speed increase at 68% torque and a 40% increase of rate of climb at altitude. Carson Helicopters' composite main rotor blades are unmatched in their impact on helicopter performance. Best of all, they are a bolt on modification requiring no additional aircraft modifications.
