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 on helipads and the resultant brownout conditions require effective helipad dust control and brownout solutions. In the balance: lives. In fact, a recent 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 320 rotorcraft crashes over the last decade.

Midwest’s patented dust control products and specialized delivery systems ensure efficient, reliable application that minimizes dust and increases safety in the places helicopters take off and land. We’re proud to play our part in keeping our military’s servicemen and women safe.
