Airforms Gains FAA PMA Approval For Helio Axle


Airforms, Inc. awarded new FAA PMA approval Helio Courier H-295 High-Strength Axle # # # BIG LAKE, ALASKA, 4-Sept-14 – Airforms, Inc. has announced another addition to its growing line of PMA replacement parts. This latest addition is Airforms’ Part Number AF250-040-495 – a direct replacement for Helio part number 250-040-495 on all H-295 S/N’s and available for a fraction of the cost of OEM replacements. The axle is manufactured from high-strength material and machined from a solid billet – the torque plate on the OEM part is welded. The Airforms’ axle is then cadmium plated for increased durability and a long service life. The axles are a drop in replacement for the original part and can accommodate wheel-ski installations. “Being headquartered in Alaska, we are keenly aware of the need for PMA parts that provide durability and long life – even when subjected to the brutal punishment of daily bush operations,” said Steve Hunter, Sales and Marketing Executive at Airforms, Inc. “These axles will help to increase the dispatch reliability for the Helio fleet, and allow the operators of these aircraft to keep them flying – not sitting AOG waiting for parts.” Airforms is the world’s leading supplier of replacement engine baffles for a wide range of general aviation aircraft; products also include an expanding line of turboprop aircraft PMA parts, STCs, and hard to source parts for fleet operators. Airforms maintains a FAA approved manufacturing system for PMA parts supported by an engineering department with FAA DER staff engineers.
