Primary Flight Control Systems - Rotorcraft

We offer a wide range of helicopter actuators for small, medium and large applications or the civil, commercial and military markets.

Both the Main and Tail Rotor Actuators incorporate the latest features including the latest developments in servo-valves, solenoid valves, spool valves and detection devices including anti-jamming on the spool valve.

The Fly-by-Wire technology has been developed for the helicopter market, with the NH90 helicopter being the first industrial rotorcraft to fly in Full Fly-by-Wire mode, with Goodrich Main Rotor Actuators onboard.

The Fly-by-Wire system is a real technical innovation, eliminating the need for mechanical links between the pilot controls and actuators, reducing pilot workload. Ultimately, the Fly-by-Wire systems offers increased manoeuvrability of the aircraft.​​​
