Abstract : Experience with known oil types, used in helicopters for transmissions, engines, hydraulics and brakes has shown that 3 main characteristics if available, would improve drastically the performance of the aircraft. These 3 main characteristics are: The same type of oil should be usable for all the above mentioned systems. The oil brands, produced according to a common specification, but by different manufacturers, should be mixable without restrictions; and Some features of the oil, which are specially important for helicopter operations, should be improved.
