DART'S Robin­son R66 emer­gency float sys­tem has achieved EASA ap­proval, fol­low­ing sim­i­lar for the Bell 505 Jet Ranger X

DART Aero­space’s Robin­son R66 Emer­gency Float Sys­tem has been ap­proved by EASA. The sys­tem has mul­ti­ple air-hold­ing chambers of light­weight ure­thane-coated fab­ric, and an alu­minium, car­bon­fi­bre and fi­bre­glass wrap to re­duce the risk of cor­ro­sion. The kit com­prises fore and aft floats, reser­voir, skid ex­ten­sions and in­stal­la­tion hard­ware.

“Achiev­ing the Euro­pean ap­proval for this kit is a big deal for DART,” said com­pany VicePres­i­dent of Com­mer­cial Op­er­a­tions Steve Ghaleb. “The DART com­mer­cial team has been re­ceiv­ing lots of in­ter­est from the Euro­pean R66 com­mu­nity for an af­ter­mar­ket op­tion to in­stall emer­gency floats, and we are happy to now be able to ser­vice that de­mand.”

Ear­lier this year the com­pany re­ceived EASA ap­proval for in­stal­la­tion of an emer­gency float sys­tem on the Bell 505 Jet Ranger X. dar­taerospace.com
