As part of its mission to supply the largest product offering to operators worldwide, DART Aerospace has announced that it has recently received European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) validation of its Bell 505 standard and float skidtubes, alongside its existing Transport Canada, Federal Aviation Administration and Mexico’s Directorate General of Civil Aeronautics approvals. These skidtubes complement the Bell 505 emergency float system, which was launched close to two years ago.
Constructed with patented I-Beam technology and shipped standard in a glossy black coating, the DART 505 float skidtubes come with standard tungsten carbide-welded wearplates. Thanks to the central I-Beam web, these skidtubes are 10 times more resistant to crushing than the competing product. These skids are also compatible with OEM crosstubes.
DART is emerging as a global leader in helicopter mission equipment and continues to offer the best quality products to a diverse range of OEMs and operators around the world.
