These horizontal stabilisers were once attached to a British Westland Lynx helicopter, making it unique pieces of aviation history. We have stabilisers from both British Army Air Corps helicopters (camouflaged) as well as Royal Navy helicopters (grey) available to be part of your home.
Beautiful on any level
This unique part will look great in any office or mancave with its distinctive form and shape. It will certainly keep the conversation at a high level wherever it is placed. Make sure to get your hands on such a piece of aviation history, as we only have a few available.
Because we carefully search for and curate all the pieces in our collections, we almost hate to part with any of them. Have you come across a piece you simply have to have? Feel free to call, e-mail or even visit us. We’ll be happy to tell you more about it, to send you more detailed photos and discuss the particulars of pricing, availability, and delivery.
Unless otherwise stated, prices include VAT (if applicable) but are without shipping costs.
The Lynx helicopter was designed and built by Westland Helicopters in the United Kingdom. The first flight of the helicopter took place in March 1971. Besides dedicated to multiple roles for the army, a naval version of the helicopter has been built as well (for search and rescue and anti-submarine tasks). Well over 400 Lynx helicopters were built. The Lynx helicopter has been in use with several services all over the world. Currently, the Leonardo Helicopters AW159 Wildcat is still in production as a further development of the original Lynx.
The British Army Air Corps started operating the Westland Lynx helicopter in 1979. A total of 100 helicopters of this type, designated Lynx AH.1 at first, was delivered to the service. It has been in use for transport, armed escort and anti-tank warfare. The AAC retired the type in 2018. Dubbed the Lynx HAS.2, it entered Fleet Air Arm (FAA) service in 1981. The Royal Navy retired its Lynx helicopters from active service on 23 March 2017.
Stabilisers are “upside down” airfoils that provide downforce instead of lift, just like on race cars. One of their functions is to reduce the nose-down attitude in cruise which makes the fuselage more level, and reducing drag by exerting a downward force on the tailboom, which raises the nose.
