Tip

I looked in vain for a drawing that shows how the tip cap is attached, but its pretty simple, thus easily replaced. Anyhow, in the two incidents to date, the tip cap has survived ( I think the Ft campbell tip cap had some tree dings ). The tip cap on the South Carolina Guard blade will get a thorough inspection, and that will answer your question. Be happy to post the findings. I am betting that the tip cap is good for much more than the max duration of fuel incl the outboard 230's if one has the ESSS.
