Rotor grip inspections are extremely crucial in ensuring safe operation of helicopters. Failure of the grip can lead to separation of the main rotor blade and the pilot can loose control of the helicopter. Therefore, repetitive inspections are required to be conducted after defined flight intervals. Grip surfaces are inspected for corrosion damage or fatigue cracking using ultrasonic, penetrant or eddy current techniques.

Besides the regularly scheduled inspections, FAA can issue airworthiness directives (ADs) based on discoveries made on specific aircraft. ADs are issued by the FAA in accordance with Code of Federal Regulations (CFRs) to correct an unsafe condition in an aircraft that requires immediate action.
