DART Helicopter Services has announced that their affiliated partner, DART Aerospace Ltd., has received EASA approval for Bell 206A/B/L/L1/L3/L4/407 Stainless Steel Wearplates and Wearpads for installation on its Round-I-Beam™ Float Skidtubes.
In addition, certification has been received for a change to the aircraft landing gear inspection interval; from 100 hours to 300 hours which will represent a significant advantage to operators in reduced maintenance costs and aircraft down time.
DART’s 206/407 Float skidtubes come standard with stainless steel wearplates, gaskets and wearpads with tungsten carbide welds for additional protection, and all stainless steel hardware. DART stainless steel wearplates and wearpads have been developed to minimize corrosion in marine environments; in addition, the use of a gasket eliminates galvanic corrosion and facilitates installation and removal of the wearplates because no sealant is used.
DART also offers stainless steel wearplates and wearpads for installation on Round-I-Beam ™ Skidtubes on the following aircraft:
• Bell 210/212/UH-1 Modular Tri-Beam float skidtubes
• Bell 204/205/210/212/214/412/UH-1 standard skidtubes
• Eurocopter AS350/AS355 standard and float skidtubes
• Newly FAA approved BK117 standard skidtubes
• Eurocopter EC135 standard and float skidtubes
