Webinar: Mechanics of Engine Mounts and Shimmy Dampers

July 9, 2020 

Join Emily Mogel, Mechanical Engineer, for a presentation that will cover general aviation engine mounting systems, designs, installations, and maintenance, followed by a discussion of the functionality and technology behind Parker LORD’s unique fluid-free shimmy dampers.

What You'll Learn:

  • General Aviation Mount Technical Designs
  • General Aviation Installations and Maintenance
  • Shimmy Damper Technology and Functionality

Fluid-Free Shimmy Damper

Parker LORD shimmy dampers are designed to control the nosewheel on aircraft, reducing motion to keep the nosewheel straight and true. The Lewis University School of Aviation shares how they’ve been able to achieve over 12 years of use/8,000 hours using Parker LORD shimmy dampers on their general aviation aircraft. By using elastomeric components instead of fluid, these shimmy dampers offer a long-term, maintenance-free solution for general aviation aircraft.

General Aviation Engine Mounts

Parker LORD set the standard for elastomeric engine mounts more than 70 years ago by providing the first Dynafocal engine mounts for aircraft. Today, our mounts continue to provide superior performance and life at all levels of General Aviation. Millions of  Parker LORD mounts have been produced, sold into the market place and flown by operators all over the world. With best-in-class quality and performance, most major OEMs and service shops specify LORD mounts.
