DART introduces the AW139 Emergency Float System
DART Aerospace introduced the AW139 Emergency Flotation System with integrated liferaft during Helitech International 2017 last week.
The new product, designed and developed by DART, will be available as a retrofit for the existing AW139 fleets in service. The system is the only one on the market available for this aircraft model, specifically with the integrated liferaft technology. All other systems have a cabin raft or a sponson-mounted raft.
Other key points about the new system include:
• DART’s system is being developed in collaboration with Leonardo and will be on the helicopter’s Type Certificate
System is Sea State 6 compliant
• The system has two (2) liferaft configurations (10 man-15 overload or 12 man-18 overload)
• Inspection at 24-month intervals
With a weight savings of up to 34 Kg/75 lbs., the new system provides drag reduction, fewer maintenance inspections, guaranteed TAT and more.
It is currently available for factory installation and will be shortly available as a retrofit kit for aircraft that are already in service.
