DART Helicopter Services has announced that their affiliated partner, DART Aerospace Ltd., has received Transport Canada approval of their Bearpaw Kits for Eurocopter EC135 and SA315 model aircraft. FAA and EASA applications have been previously approved.
Like all DART Bearpaws, the kits for the EC135 and SA315 are constructed of a high density polymer that resists cracking, chipping and breaking. The one-piece machined construction ensures consistent and deliberate load transfer. The material is also flexible so it can deflect under high-point contact loads when landing on rock or roots. DART Bearpaws also have an inherent memory so they return to their original shape upon take off.
“Unlike the plywood, aluminum or composite products traditionally used, DART’s polymer Bearpaws have proven again and again to be a more durable and therefore a safer and more economical solution for helicopter operators regardless of the terrain. “Quote by Bill Beckett, General Manager, DART Aerospace.
DART Bearpaws are also available for:
• Agusta A119
• Bell 206A/B/L/407/OH-58
• Bell 204/205/210/212/214/412/UH-1
• Eurocopter AS350/AS355/EC120/EC130/BO105
