EASA ap­proves R66 pop-out floats

Pilot - - ROTORHEADS -

EASA has is­sued fi­nal ap­proval for the Robin­son R66 Tur­bine Marine’s pop-out float in­stal­la­tion. Af­ter tests con­ducted in Spain last July which demon­strated that the floats meet Sea State 4 re­quire­ments, it cleared the Marine for use in emer­gency sit­u­a­tions and for com­mer­cial op­er­a­tions. The tests were car­ried out at a fa­cil­ity ca­pa­ble of sim­u­lat­ing the re­quired con­di­tions in terms of height, pe­riod and char­ac­ter of waves on the sur­face of a large body of wa­ter.
