Section VII. DESCRIPTION AND APPLICATION PROCEDURES FOR THE UH-60 AIRCRAFT
. This procedure provides instructions for the application
of a kit which protects helicopter rotor blades
against sand erosion which may occur. The steps are arranged in sequence to permit two personnel to complete
installation on the entire UH-60 aircraft in sequence. If more than two personnel are available, the main rotor and tail rotor
can be done simultaneously.
3-17. Personnel Requirement and Supplies.
a. Personnel: 2 required (MOS 67 Series).
3-18. Installation Procedures.
a. Remove Blades . Removing the main rotor blades makes the installation easier, but removal is not mandatory.
The tail rotor blades should not be removed.
Inadvertent blade deice with erosion strips installed can cause blade damage.
(1) Pull the blade deice control circuit breaker and leave it in that position until the blade protection lit installation
strips are removed. Use wire harness tie wrap to prevent circuit breaker engagement.
The deice circuit breaker is located on the No. 2 Primary Bus of the Mission
Readiness Circuit Breaker Panel.
