Singapore Air Show

(01/17/2012)

Pulling 6 to 12+ 'Gs' can take its toll on aerobatic planes and pilots, and no component parts take a greater beating than the plane's engine mounts. Fortunately for many professional aerobatic and competition pilots, LORD® engine mounts have proven to be the safe and dependable solution.

One way to showcase our expertise in this area is through the 16th biennial Singapore Air Show, held Feb. 14-19. Not only will LORD have a display at the show, but stunt pilot Tony Blair, from Australia, will be performing daredevil stunts with a "LORD Ask Us How" logo displayed on his single-propeller Rebel 300 plane.

According to recent news articles, Blair stated that "The Rebel is capable of just about anything. It will hover like a helicopter, fly nice flat spins, and do all sorts of gyroscopic tumbles and all the traditional graceful aerobatics too."

LORD has been the premier provider of engine mounts for general aviation since the late 1940s. LORD supplies softer mountings that aircraft owners demand for lower noise and vibration levels in the cabin, but also specializes in the stiffer, high performance engine mountings used in the most demanding aerobatic applications.

"LORD mounts easily handle the enormous G loads associated with 360 degree turns, hammer-heads, and snap-roll maneuvers," said Paul Snyder, Staff Engineer, Technical Sales. "Even with these punishing aerobatics, LORD Mounts last an entire season and are still serviceable at engine overhaul."

In addition to Blair's performance, the show will include the Roulettes aerobatic team from the Royal Australian Air Force; the Republic of Singapore Air Force's F-16C and F-15SG fighter jets; a ground display of stationary 60 commercial and military flying machines.

The event, touted as one of the top three air shows in the world--after Paris' Le Bourget and Britain's Farnborough--will also provide LORD with an opportunity to showcase a variety of engine mount and accessory isolation, rotor system damper and bearing solutions.
