NOTES:
(1) Lifelimited components interchanged between models or configurations must be restricted to the lowest
service life indicated for the models or configurations affected. Lifelimited components removed at
retirement are to be either overhauled, or placed in controlled storage until the life is extended, or
destroyed or conspicuously marked to prevent inadvertent return to service. Parts are applicable only on
models under which a service life is listed.
(2) Hours listed are flight hours unless otherwise noted.
(3) Interim life; life extension in progress (ref. FAA lifelimit data, Rev. BC).
(4) Ref. applicable manufacturer publications for mandatory component replacement requirements.
(5) Special inspections required at 50hour and 100hour intervals. Refer to MDHI Service Bulletin
SB900001R5 or later, and to Section 052010 for inspection requirements.
(6) Special inspections required at 100hour and 1000hour intervals. Ref. Section 052010.
(7) Special inspection required every 500hours. Ref. Section 052010.
(8) 500N53115 TensionTorsion Straps previously installed on MD900 helicopters are lifelimited to 2,500
hours when installed on MD500N series helicopters.
(9) After 2,000 hours, the life of the Elastomeric Damping Spring is On Condition but requires performance
of a Special inspection every 100 hours thereafter until deterioration is sufficient to retire assembly. Ref.
Section 052010.
(10) Special inspection required every 1,000hours or 6 months, whichever comes first. Ref. Section 052010.
(11) Aircraft Equipped with Autopilots
The 900C3010004107 trim actuator assembly must be overhauled every 5000 hours.
Aircraft not Equipped with Autopilots
The trim actuator assembly is not considered flight critical.
(12) Life of damper may use 30,000 landings instead of 5,000 hours if aircraft logs landings. Operators who
have not logged landings can apply 6 landings per hour to determine life of part.
(13) Life limit is from date of manufacture stamped on the cartridge.
(14) Inspection required at 5,000 hours and at each subsequent 2,500 hours. Ref. Section 052010.
(15) Special inspection required every 50hours. Ref. Section 052010.
(16) Special inspections required at 100hour and 300hour intervals. Ref. Section 052010.
(17) Service life shown for the basic (no dash number) part numbers apply to all dash numbered versions
unless otherwise indicated.
(18) Part number 900R1103002101 is part of 900R1103001109.
Part number 900R1103003101 is part of 900R1103001111.
Part number 900R1103004101 is part of 900R1103001113.
Part number 900R1103005101 is part of 900R1103001115.
(19) Special inspections required at 1200hour and subsequent 300hour intervals. Ref. Section 052010.
(20) Special inspection required every 1,000 hours. Ref. Section 052010.
(21) The tensiontorsion straps have a 5 year calendar life that starts the day the package is opened (ref.
Section 643000). If the date the package was opened is unknown, the 5year calendar life is based on
the manufacturing cure date.
For straps installed before 06 March 2008 on Model MD900 helicopters serial numbers 900000008 thru
900000123, the initial calendar replacement is based on the cure date on the strap. Refer to Table 2 to
find the expiration date.

Bulletin SB900105 and all rotorcraft SNs 900000125 thru subsequent, timeinservice is accumulated at
an accelerated rate. To calculate the accelerated timeinservice, take the actual flight hours of the
rotating swashplate and multiply by 1.07 to determine hours toward 7,285 life limit.
Example: 6,808 actual flight hours x 1.07 accelerated life factor equals 7,285 hours.
