Helicopter Transmission Oil Use?

Hello r3v! I have access to some of these, which is apparently used in helicopter transmissions. I am wondering if this will work in my 318is' transmission?

Thanks!

I personally would not run "Triple five" in an automotive transmission because I have no idea how it compares to the original fluid, or how it would interact with softer metals in the transmission.

For what benefit? Saving $16 dollars?

Not worth the risk.

Only use that if your car has a tail rotor.
