DART Aerospace representatives will highlight the company’s comprehensive aviation safety equipment capabilities at the 23rd SAFE Europe Symposium at the Beaumont Estate Hotel, Old Windsor, UK on April 11-13, 2016 where it will display its’ Airbus Helicopters H125/AS350 Quick Release Emergency Float System With Integrated Liferafts. This system is ideal for multi-mission operators looking to gain payload by quickly removing up to 125 lb. (57 kg) by simply disconnecting all float bags and the reservoir when floats are not required.
“DART Aerospace is dedicated to the helicopter industry safety,” says Alain Madore, DART’s Vice President of Commercial Operations and Aftermarket. “For the past 20 years, we have been developing innovative lightweight and reliable emergency flotation systems and we now equip over 30 helicopter models made by six leading OEMs.” DART’s inflatable systems are utilized by helicopter operators serving the global offshore oil and gas industry as well as for other overwater missions flown by private, commercial, government and military helicopter operators around the world.
The exclusive DART emergency float systems with integrated liferafts are significantly lighter (up to 75 lb./34 kg) due to their patented lightweight material and components. They also require 50% less maintenance intervals in order to drastically reduce maintenance cost and aircraft downtime while improving safety. The external mounted liferafts can be quickly deployed by an activation lever to save critical time during emergency situations and provide operators with extra cabin space to maximize passenger capacity compared to stowing life rafts in-cabin.
DART’s network of international repair and overhaul facilities – FAA Part 145 and EASA Part 145 – offer exclusive exchange programs, repairs, testing and repacking of emergency floats and systems, liferafts and vests, including inflatable products made by third-parties with best-in-class turnaround time.
