The DART Round-I-Beam™ skidtube has long been globally recognized for providing a high quality, easy to install and durable skidtube solution.  DART Round-I-Beam™ skidtubes for Medium Bell aircraft are LH/RH interchangeable. The central I-beam web in DART skidtubes absorbs most of the impact on landing so the tube maintains its structural integrity and, even with the addition of a central web, the weight is comparable to that of conventional skidtubes.  DART Medium Bell skidtubes come complete with full length stainless steel wearplates with tungsten carbide welds that are installed with a protective membrane between the tube and the wearplate, virtually eliminating any galvanic corrosion.

Quote Bill Beckett: “DART has been extending the advantages of Round-I-Beam™ technology to an ever increasing variety of aircraft, including Light and Medium Bell, Eurocopter AS350/355, BO 105, SA 315, EC 135, BK 117 and now UH-1’s in civil operation.  Now these operators no longer to need to seek field approvals in order to take advantage of the benefits of DART Round-I-Beam™ skidtubes.”
