Expanded Availability For Stronger Landing Gear
Dart Helicopter Services affiliate Dart Aerospace recently
received the updates to both the FAA and EASA certifications of its
Round-I-Beam™ Skidtube for the Eurocopter EC135 P2+/T2+.
Previous issues of the FAA and EASA STC's listed EC 135P1/P2/T1/T2
The Dart Round-I-Beam Skidtube has long been a staple in the
rotary wing industry and has received recognition around the globe
for providing a high quality, easy to install and durable skid tube
In recent years, Dart has extended the advantages of
Round-I-Beam Skidtube technology to an ever-increasing variety of
aircraft, including Light and Medium Bell, Eurocopter AS350/355, BO
105, SA 315, BK117 and now the EC 135 P1/P2/P2+/T1/T2/T2+.
The Round-I-Beam Skidtube for the EC135 incorporates the
strength of the I-Beam into a conventional round tube. Like other
Dart skidtubes, the EC 135 skidtube is up to 10 times more
resistant to damage when compared to conventional tubes.
The DART skidtube comes complete with full length stainless
steel wearplates that are installed with a protective rubber
membrane that virtually eliminates any corrosion associated with
the wearplates and the skidtubes. The EC135 skidtube is compatible
with standard low and float landing gear, and is pre-drilled and
adaptable for compatibility with Apical Floats.
