Helicopter Vibrations


Helicopters have many rotating parts and vibrations are inevitable. But sudden increased or new vibrations can lead to catastrophic failure of components.

Helicopter vibrations can be broken down into the following by frequency:

  • Low
  • Medium
  • High

The low frequency vibrations are usually associated with the main rotor system and can be further broken down by:

  • Lateral
  • Vertical
