Dart Earns FAA, EASA Approvals For EC135 Round-I-Beam Skidtubes

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 models only.

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 solution.

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.
