With the second largest commercial helicopter fleet globally (2,800 helicopters), Canadian operators know the importance of efficient, effective flight operations in one of the most diverse, high utilization environments worldwide. And for more than 13 years, Donaldson Aerospace & Defense has helped improve Canadian helicopter operations by reducing engine damage costs through installation of the company’s inlet barrier filter (IBF) systems.
Providing the most comprehensive line of IBF solutions, Donaldson Aerospace & Defense is the industry leader in the design, development and manufacture of high-performance engine IBF systems for commercial and military propulsion systems.
Donaldson’s most popular IBF systems in Canada are for H125, Bell 407 and Bell 205 helicopters, with hundreds of these IBFs deployed by fire, utility and corporate operators, including Blackcomb Helicopters, Capitale Hélicoptère, Fireweed Helicopters, Selkirk Mountain Helicopters, Universal Helicopters, Yellowhead Helicopters, and many others.
Whether flying in snow in the Yukon, hot and high firefighting conditions in British Columbia, or coastal weather in Newfoundland, operators equipped with Donaldson IBFs can carry out their missions effectively, with maximum performance, according to Matt Fortuna, general manager of Donaldson Aerospace & Defense. “Donaldson salutes the Canadian operators who trust our IBFs to help protect engines and reduce aircraft operating costs,” said Fortuna. “They are flying important missions across the country.”
