Helicopter Ditching Testing

SIREHNA provides a practical response to helicopter certifications with ditching provisions

- Structural strength of the cabin
- Dynamic behavior after wave impact


We are providing mock-up design and manufacturing for testing applied to multiple domains :

- Helicopter
- Unmanned Surface and Aerial Vehicle
- Airplane


Mock-up and design manufacturing

- Multiple configurations
- Ballasting of the mock-up
- Main rotor to produce adjustable lift
- Pressure sensors
