15 Attributes of Success

16 Maintenance Program –Preventive –Corrective –Upgrades / Modifications Mechanical System Avionics/Electrical/Mission System

17 Maintenance Program Preventive –Depot Level Maint (Third Level Insp & Repair - TLIR) –Base Level Maint (Periodic Inspections – PER) 600 hrs +/- 50 hrs PER #1 & #3 – Minor PER #2 & #4 – Major –Squadron Level Maint (Supplementary Insp – SUPP) 25 hrs +/- 2.5 hrs After & Before Flight Checks Corrosion - #1 & #2 – Alternate Every 7 Days Conditional Inspections – Hard Ldg, Lightening Strike, etc

18 Maintenance Program Corrective –Structural Repair Manual (Standard Repairs) –System Maint Manuals (Fault Diagnosis & Repair) –OEM or Contractor Developed Repairs –Temp or Non-Standard Repairs –Aircraft Battle Damage & Repair

19 Maintenance Program Upgrades / Modifications –Mechanical System –Avionics/Electrical/Mission System –CD (Depot Level) Approx 225 CD mods to date –CF (Field Level) Approx 600 CF mods to date

20 Attributes of Success Maintenance Program Aircraft Structural Integrity

21 Attributes of Success Aircraft Structural Integrity –Technical Airworthiness Manual Since 2003 provides ASI related Rules & Standards Replaced Tech Order based on MIL-STD-1530C ASI ASI Program Elements –Statement of Operating Intent –Baseline Usage Spectrum with Mission Profiles –Structural Usage Monitoring (SUM) –Structural Condition Monitoring (SCM) –Aircraft Structural Integrity Mgmt Plan (ASIMP)

22 Aircraft Structural Integrity Process Structural Condition Monitoring Structural Analysis Fleet Structural Maintenance Plan Structural Usage Monitoring Baseline Usage (SOI) Analytical Methods SCM uses data from: Scheduled maintenance, Repairs SIs Service bulletins Full-scale tests Foreign operators OEM Models, software, data Includes usage data collection, transfer, analysis and reporting Final product of ASI process, used to generate maintenance program Inspection-generated data

23 Baseline Usage Spectrum CH124 BUS Analysis (Sikorsky 2005) –BUS Development Operations & Flight Witnessing Pilot Interviews Usage Data Analysis from CF335 Forms –Dynamic Component Fatigue Usage Spectrum Adjusted fatigue lives –9 Mission Profiles –Produced Composite Worst Case Usage Spectrum

24 Baseline Usage Spectrum CH124 Mission Profiles A – Reconnaissance/Surveillance (Recce) B – Crew Operational Readiness (COREX) C – Pilot Proficiency Flight (PPF) D – Maintenance Test Flight (MTF) E – Helicopter Delivery Service/Utility (HDS/Utility) F – Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) G – Search and Rescue (SAR) H – Cross-Country/Pilot Proficiency Instrument Flight K – Waterbird (Ceased Trg Fall 2013)

25 COREX Mission Profile (a) Flight Initiation, RADAR Tracking / Surveillance (b) SAR Exercise (c) SONAR Dips (d) Return to Base (e) Yard Work (off-levels) (f) Yard Work (slung loads) (g) Flight conclusion

26 Baseline Usage Spectrum

27 CH124 “Composite Worst Case” Spectrum (cont)

28 Aircraft Structural Integrity Mgmt Plan CH124 Structural Usage Monitoring (SUM) –Fatigue monitoring program Includes individual aircraft tracking Requires sufficient and relevant data to track usage –Review process to compare actual to baseline –Process to re-evaluate component lives –Maintenance program review based on findings

29 Aircraft Structural Integrity Mgmt Plan CH124 SUM Dataset Mission Type; # of main rotor starts and stops; # of landings; # of auto-rotations; Slung Loads; Fuel weight at take-off and at landing; Flight duration; Approx time spent above 103% Nr; Approx % of time spent: Below 90 knots; Between 90 and 120 knots; Above 120 knots; Approx time spent in In- ground Effect (IGE) and Out-of-Ground Effect (OGE) hover; and Approx time running on ground in flight drive.

30 Aircraft Structural Integrity Mgmt Plan CH124 Usage Spectrum Mission Weighting

31 Aircraft Structural Integrity Mgmt Plan Comparison of Mission Usage to Baseline

32 Aircraft Structural Integrity Mgmt Plan CH124 SUM - Exceedences from Baseline –Limit or adjust usage patterns or mission profile AC 412 continue to limit usage of Mission A (Recce/Surv) AC 441 limit usage of Mission H (X-Country / PPIF) Autorotations / One Engine Inoperative / Waterbird –Add or increase inspection requirements Reduce Interval for SSI#12- Left/Fwd Sponson Mount to 600hrs

33 Baseline Usage Spectrum CH124 Mission Profile - Damage Severity Most Damaging - Dynamic Components & SSIs A – Reconnaissance/Surveillance (Recce) C – Pilot Proficiency Flight (PPF) G – Search and Rescue (SAR) K – Waterbird (Ceased Trg Fall 2013) Moderate Damage to Specific Components D – Maintenance Test Flight (MTF) E – Helicopter Delivery Service/Utility (HDS/Utility) F – Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) H – Cross-Country/Pilot Proficiency Instrument Flight Non-Damaging B – Crew Operational Readiness (COREX)

34 Aircraft Structural Integrity Mgmt Plan CH124 Structural Condition Monitoring (SCM) –Program to monitor structural repairs and inspection records –Long-term impact assessment of structural repairs –Review of inspection records to determine trends –Review of structural related in-service monitoring data –Process to re-evaluate the maintenance program Adjust Preventive Maint Inspections –(i.e. Corrosion Control)

35 Aircraft Structural Integrity Mgmt Plan CH124 SCM Policy –SCM Function in CH124 ASIP –SCM Data Sources & Tools –Definition of Structurally Significant Items (SSIs) –Damage Mapping Corrosion Fatigue Mechanical –SCM Reporting Annually

36 Aircraft Structural Integrity Mgmt Plan SCM Function in CH124 ASIP –Monitor Structural Repairs & Inspection Records; –Consider Primary Structure as a minimum; –Determine trends in frequency of damage by location; –Review service difficulty reports impacting ASI longterm; –Document identified trends & provide recommendations; –Dynamic Components Currently outside SCM scope but coming soon…

37 Aircraft Structural Integrity Mgmt Plan SCM Data Sources & Tools –Primary Data Sources Historical TLIR & PER#4 Reports reviewed in FY11/12 Up to four reports/aircraft were reviewed –SCM Dataset Primary Structure not defined in Sikorsky documents CH124 SCM Policy classifies Primary Structural Elements

38 Aircraft Structural Integrity Mgmt Plan CH124 SCM Definition of SSIs –The part is a subset of aircraft primary structure; –Failure of the part could cause direct loss of the aircraft (Category I); –Failure of the part could cause substantial damage to the aircraft (Category II); –The part has been shown, by experience or analysis, to be prone to damage; and –Part geometry and/or load carrying capability and material did not change with a structural modification yet show a history of chronic, severe damage.

39 Aircraft Structural Integrity Mgmt Plan 37 x Structurally Significant Items –SSI List is available to review if interested 64 x Structurally Significant Modifications –modifications or repairs on the aircraft that have a significant impact on the life and airframe structural integrity
