BLR Aerospace (Booth No. 2970) has selected Simplex Manufacturing (Booth No. 3421) to market and sell BLR’s performance-enhancing helicopter products in parts of the Middle East and Southeast Asia. BLR, based in Everett, Wash., offers a range of aerodynamic improvements, including the FastFin tail rotor enhancement and stability system for multiple Bell helicopter models. BLR also recently installed its FastFin system on 10 Bell Huey II helicopters operating in Afghanistan. The system allows armed State Department helicopters to fly more effectively with greater payloads at the high-density altitudes common to the mountainous regions of Afghanistan.
