VHA Offers the UH-1H in three different paint schemes. The default paint scheme is a black blade with white stripes. Other options include a white blade with black stripes, and black blade with no stripes. A paint option must be requested on the purchase order; There is no price difference between the three options.
****Note: The -301 black paint option is only available with out STC/PMA identification and therefore can not be installed on FAA Type Certificated Helicopters. This option is for those customers that operate outside the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR). The -301 blade is manufactured identically to the -101 but with out the high visibility marking required pre FAR 29.1565.

VHA Introduces Composite 206L Tail Rotor Blades

Van Horn Aviation received FAA Supplemental Type Certification (STC) for its 206L series composite tail rotor blade on February 8, 2010. The 206L certification amends the STC that VHA received for its 206B tail rotor blade in September 2009.

VHA's 206 tail rotor blade takes advantage of high-tech materials, a more efficient airfoil design, and advanced construction techniques to deliver great performance at double the life of current blades on the market. The composite tail rotor blade features a carbon fiber spar and skins, titanitum root fitting, and a nickel abrasion strip, resulting in a lighter but stronger rotor blade.
