DART Helicopter Services is pleased to announce that their subsidiary partner Apical Industries Inc., has received Transport Canada approval of their Cylindrical Emergency Float Systems with & without Liferafts for the Eurocopter AS355E, F, F1, F2, N & NP models.

Apical’s Eurocopter AS355 Cylindrical Emergency Float Systems are the only float systems certified for take-off after a water landing for the Eurocopter AS355. The systems are also available with 2 - six man liferafts integrated into the Aft Floats. The patented integrated design of the Apical Liferaft system conserves valuable passenger space and provides a significant safety benefit over cabin mounted options. The mechanical inflation systems for the floats and liferafts have no squibs or electrical components. The cylinder/valve assemblies, floats and liferafts are available as exchange items, thereby reducing maintenance and down time. All float chambers come standard with field replaceable pressure relief and inflation valves. The float retirement is on-condition rather than a life limit. Additionally, annual inspection of floats, as compared with six month inspection required in some competitors’ products, lowers ongoing maintenance costs of the systems.
