FDC/aerofilter is pleased to announce that Eurocopter EC120B helicopters equipped with FDC/aerofilter inlet barrier filters may now operate in accordance with the basic rotorcraft flight manual.
The FAA recently approved a revision to FDC/aerofilterâ€™s rotorcraft flight manual supplement, allowing these aircraft to operate in accordance with the performance sections of the basic rotorcraft flight manual as long as the aircraft passes the basic flight manual engine health checks. This change frees operators from the restrictive hover ceiling, rate of climb, and gross weight penalties previously imposed on all FDC/aerofilter equipped EC120B helicopters, enabling the aircraft to operate to their full capabilities.
