Introducing our NEW Helo Tail Rotor Chain Bracelet. For those of you who have flown or served with the iconic UH-1 (HUEY) line of aircraft, there is little need for introduction. The UH-1 was in service for decades and served its country with pride. It is still in use in some parts of the world. Whether pilot, passenger, or crew, you know the importance of the tail rotor chain. For those who do not know, this chain is a key component in controlling this helicopter and keeping it from spinning out of control. Out of the 1000 parts of the aircraft, this is one of the most important. 

So why a bracelet made of a rotor chain? This goes back to traditions from the Vietnam conflict. Each unit had their own tradition for issuing a bracelet made from the rotor chain. Depending on the unit, you could earn you bracelet by crashing the helo, by not crashing for a period of time, number of kills, number of successful missions, or by being a member of the crew or pilot. Either way, they were and are a prize with deep meaning.
