Things are going well for us here in our rural part of Ohio with only 22 cases of Covid-19 in our county of just under 100,000 people. We hope that you, our customers, vendors and business partners, are doing as well as possible under these trying circumstances. Our thoughts and prayers go out to anyone who has had their or their loved one's health or livelihood effected.
We are open for business as usual and are busy shipping our TT Straps for Bell 206 Jet Rangers and Long Rangers, Bell 204, 205, 212, UH-1, AH-1, Enstrom 480 and piston Enstrom's. We are also shipping our Bell 407 main rotor head Dampers, Shear Bearings and Lead Lag Bearing Elastomerics and have protective Blade Tape kits and our Apollo Spray aerial agricultural spray systems for R22 and R44 Helicopters. We have plenty of stock of our products so the parts will be there for our customers when needed. We supply our products to police departments, sheriff departments, fire fighters and air ambulance operators and are pleased to be able to help keep them flying.

We are still working diligently on our STC project for the installation of True Blue Power's(r) Lithium-ion batteries. The virus will cause a delay, but we are working to minimize its impact. Bell 206, Bell 407 MD369/500/600, Enstrom 480 and EC-135/H125 and variants will all be covered by the initial STC release. More models will follow later in 2020. The True Blue Power(r) batteries provide a ton of starting power, charge fully in 10 minutes of flying time, have an 8 year life (conservatively) and take very little maintenance. The 17-amp hour battery's only required maintenance is to discharge it, charge it back up and check the capacity every two years. The newer generation TB20, TB30 and TB40 batteries are "on condition" and have lights on the battery that tell the operator if maintenance is required.
Please let us know if you need information on any of our products and stay safe whether you are flying or just out and about.
