DART to Launch Skidtube Variants for the Eurocopter EC145 Aircraft

Hawkesbury – DART is renowned for its patented Round-I-BeamTM technology that combines the conventional round tube with the strength of the I-Beam that absorbs most of the impact on landing so the tube maintains its integrity. EC145 owners and operators will now benefit from this revolutionary technology as DART announces the launch of the skidtube variants for the EC145.

Four variants have now received approval from FAA:

  • Skidtube standard wearplates
  • Skidtube run-on landing wearplates
  • Float skidtube standard wearplate
  • Float skidtube run-on landing wearplates


Transport Canada and EASA approvals are expected shortly.

Key benefits of the DART skidtube:

  • 10x more resistant to denting & punctures with the I-Beam technology
  • Compatible with OEM crosstubes & saddles
  • Reduced need for spares inventory with LH/RH interchangeable parts
  • Easy wearplate installation and removal for inspection/replacement
  • Manufactured from 6061-T6 aluminum, it can be welded for repair and is more corrosion resistant than 7075
  • Full length stainless steel wearplates installed with thru-bolt


FLOAT SKIDTUBE:
One-piece float skidtube; no need to purchase float extension
