Untreated, dust on military helipads and other landing areas can blind pilots, erode helicopter rotor blades, and affect helicopters’ engines, filters, and electronic equipment. Heavy dust from helipads and the resultant brownout conditions require effective helipad dust control and brownout solutions.
A study by the Office of the U.S. Secretary of Defense concluded that degraded visual awareness has caused 80 percent of the US military’s rotorcraft crashes over the last decade. Midwest’s dust control agents stabilize landing areas quickly and easily to avoid this potential hazard and to prevent service interruptions.
