April 24, 2008 – DART Helicopter Services has announced that their affiliated partner, DART Aerospace Ltd., has received Transport Canada’s approval of their Drive Shaft Tunnel for 205A-1/205B Helicopters.
The DART Drive Shaft Tunnel is larger at the forward end than the OEM assembly that it replaces, in order to accommodate the larger diameter tail rotor drive shafts now common on Bell 205’s. The DART Drive Shaft Tunnel provides additional clearance around the tail rotor drive shaft at the forward firewall thereby reducing the chance of the drive shaft contacting the tunnel during operations. DART’s Drive Shaft Tunnel features a removable center section below the starter that provides extra clearance for starter maintenance; additionally, this section can be replaced independently if necessary in the event of damage during routine maintenance rather than replacing the tunnel entirely.
“DART’s excellent relationship with operators has again provided us with the opportunity to certify a product that solves a specific problem in the industry today. We are pleased not only to be providing a product that enhances operations but also reduces maintenance costs and down time.”, Bill Beckett, General Manager DART Aerospace.
