2.11 ROTARY-WING BLADE (BT).
2.11.1 Description (Figure 2-1. Index No. 11). The rotary-wing blades are composite structures that consist of a D-
shaped fiberglass spar, titanium leading edge, nickel erosion cap, and a fairing having fiberglass skins over nomex
honeycomb bonded to the spar. This inspection is to verify any void indications found visually.
2.11.2 Defects. Void damage may occur anywhere on both sides of the blade.
A void is defined as an unbonded area that is supposed to be bonded. Many sub-definitions of
voids are given such as lack of adhesive, gas pocket, misfit, etc. However, this manual makes no
distinction among these, grouping them all under one general term ("void").
