Gyro & Accelerometer Repair Capabilities

Chesterland, OH — Aerospace Maintenance Solutions, LLC (AMS) has published a new leaflet that describes the company’s testing, troubleshooting, repair, and overhaul of many common gyros and accelerometers. The company’s capabilities include a variety of services for accelerometers as well as rate, roll, and lead-computing gyros used on military fighters (F-5, F-15, and F-16), helicopters (Bell 412, UH-1, UH-60), and transports (C-130).

The two-page leaflet shows AMS’s in-house CONTRAVES rate table and supporting test equipment used for maintaining and sustaining the flight control components. AMS technicians are trained to operate the two-axis rate table for determining if the gyros and accelerometers are sending the correct output signals, operating within normal tolerance ranges, and meeting other important airworthiness criteria.

Horizontal and vertical rates, acceleration forces, and other rate table testing capabilities are detailed in the free leaflet.

AMS offers a combination of solutions for each component serviced. Solutions for cost efficiency, regulatory compliance, technical troubleshooting, design, diminishing sources of replacement components, procurement, and maintenance are rendered on an “as needed” basis, depending upon the individual requirements and preferences of customers.  Repairs, testing procedures, and other relevant practices used for returning gyros and accelerometers to service are documented by AMS.
