  • INTRODUCTION to UH-60

  • LEARNING STEP 5: Identify the operational characteristics of the UH-60 Landing Gear System

    • The helicopter has conventional, non-retractable landing gear system, consisting of two main gear assemblies and a tail wheel assembly

    • The interchangeable drag beams, attaches to the airframe at one end and to the shock strut at the other, and transmits landing loads to the airframe and shock strut

    • A static ground wire is clamped to the left axle retaining bolt only to assist in dissipating static electricity while on the ground. A static bonding jumper is connected to the airframe and to the drag beam on both main landing gears to ensure there is a good path for any static electricity buildup to the static ground wire connected to the left axle retaining bolt

  • LEARNING STEP 5: Identify the operational characteristics of the UH-60 Landing Gear System

    • A landing gear weight-on-wheels (WOW) switch is installed on the left landing gear to control operation of selected systems

    • Main shock strut is a two-stage, nitrogen-oil shock strut. It strokes approximately 24 inches and is covered with a fiberglass panel

    • Two-stage struts are in tandem. Lower stage compresses first to absorb shock loads up to 10 feet per second (fps); upper strut starts to compress above 10 fps

  • LEARNING STEP 5: Identify the operational characteristics of the UH-60 Landing Gear System

    • Each stage has three variable-size oil chambers and a floating piston with a nitrogen charge in the struts which gives a spring action as the aircraft lands and taxies; hydraulic fluid (MIL-H-5606) in each stage will regulate the rate of compression and extension

    • At design weight (16,825 pounds), struts should prevent the fuselage from contacting the ground when landing at approximately 11.25 g’s

    • The system incorporates a jack and kneel feature that permits manual raising or lowering of the fuselage for air transportability

    • Maximum forward touchdown speed is limited to 60 knots ground speed on level terrain

    • Do not exceed a touchdown sink rate of 540 feet-per minute on level terrain and 360 feet-per minute on slopes with gross weights of up to 16,825 pounds; above 16,825 pounds gross weight 300 feet-per-minute on level terrain and 180 feet-per-minute on slopes

    • Main Wheel Assembly

      • Each wheel consists of a 26 x 10.0-11 tubeless tire, that is serviced with nitrogen, a forged aluminum two section wheel rim (inner diameter -11 inches; outer, 13 inches)

      • On the inner wheel half, seven (7) drive keys engage the two rotating steel, key-slotted disks (part of the brake system) to the wheel

      • Both main wheels have a self-adjusting, double disc, three-cavity brake assembly, which includes a visual brake lining wear indicator

      • Two slave mixer valves under the pilot’s seat

      • Parking brake valve under the pilot’s seat

      • Parking brake T-handle is on the aft center console

    • NOTE: To set the parking brakes, press on either the pilot or the copilot toe brake pedals, pulling the parking brake handle to its fully extended position, then releasing the toe brakes while holding the handle out

    • Brake housing with wear indicators bolted to each drag beam

      • Two visual brake lining wear indicators are located on both brake housings

      • The wear indicators are spring loaded in the retracted position to ensure they do not drag on the disk during normal operation

      • Pushing on the spring loaded wear indicator pin until it touches the brake disk then observing the amount of the pin height remaining above the nut indicates the level of wear of the brake pads (pucks). If the wear pin becomes flush with nut, replacement of the brake pads is required

    • Tail Wheel Assembly

      • The tail wheel swivels 360° locks in the trail position and encompasses a two-stage tandem nitrogen-oil shock strut

      • Lower stage compresses to absorb normal taxi and landing loads up to 10 feet per second. The upper strut compresses above 10 feet per second

      • The fixed tail landing gear secures to the rear tail cone structure and provides rear support of the helicopter. The upper end of the strut is bolted to the tail cone with the lower end of the nitrogen-oil shock strut bolted to the yoke

    • Tail Wheel Lock System

      • An electrically operated actuator, secured to the yoke assembly, secures the tail wheel in the trailing position when the helicopter is parked or in flight

      • The lock pin actuator is controlled by the tail wheel lock control switch in the miscellaneous switch (MISC SW) panel. When the tail wheel control switch is pushed in, power from the DC essential bus energizes the actuator to the extended position which will move the spring cylinder and the lockpinbellcrank aft, inserting the lockpin down into the hole of the fork which prevents the fork from swiveling
