Naasco Northeast has announced its Mercury Mod configured starter generators have accumulated more than one million combined flight hours on Eurocopters, including the AS 350, AS 355, AS 365, EC 120, EC 130, EC 135 and EC 145.

According to the company, the milestone was made possible by the extended life achieved by the Mercury Mod and Naasco’s proprietary 1,000-hour brush life guarantee. The modification aids in cooling of the starter generator by incorporating an improved fan cover, modified end bells and an improved brush grade, which results in slower commutator wear.
