How a helicopter hangs by its “elbows”

Straight up, straight down, forwards, backwards, or just hovering— the Piasecki “Work Horse” Helicopter’s peculiar flying maneuverability rests in its rotor assemblies. It is these flexible “elbows” that adjust the pitch of the ‘copter’s great blades. Each unit involves more than 625 separate parts. To machine and assemble them, Piasecki depends on Lycoming for precision production.

Lycoming stands ready to assist you whether you have a metal product that needs speedy precision or volume fabrication—or “just an idea” in the rough or blueprint stage. Long famous for its metal-working skill, Lycoming continues to meet the most exacting requirements in a wide diversity of fields, both industrial and military. Whatever your problem—look to Lycoming!

More than 6,000 machine tools, a wealth of creative engineering ability and 2% million feet of floor space stand ready to serve your needs.
