FAA APPROVES BELL 212 HELICOPTER FLIGHT MANUAL SUPPLEMENT, INCREASING PERFORMANCE WITH BLR AEROSPACE FASTFIN SYSTEM

                                                                                              

EVERETT, WA, October 20, 2011 – BLR Aerospace, a name synonymous with outstanding performance enhancement technologies that increase the capabilities of rotary-wing and fixed-wing aircraft by manufacturers such as Bell Helicopter and Hawker Beechcraft, today announced an FAA-certified performance increase for its Bell 212 FastFin® System.
 
The FAA has approved a Flight Manual Supplement (FMS) certifying up to 500 pounds of additional out-of-ground effect hover performance for Bell 212s equipped with FastFin.  The same approval is expected soon from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). With the FastFin® System, most Bell 212 operators will increase their useful load between 10% and 15%.
 
“Helping the Bell helicopter community fly more productively and more safely is a priority for BLR,” said Dave Marone, BLR’s vice president of Sales and Marketing. “The FastFin® System clearly delivers the performance benefits operators need and want.”
 
Installation of the FastFin® Tail Rotor Enhancement and Stability System kit involves modifying a helicopter tailboom with two parallel strips (known as Dual Tailboom Strakes), and reshaping the vertical fin to optimize airflow around the tailboom.  This field installed kit delivers a range of important benefits to operators who fly the modified aircraft.
 
More than 75 FastFin® Systems have been sold for Bell 412 helicopters since the system was FAA certified in July 2010, and EASA certification is imminent. The system’s advantages — including up to 1,250 pounds of additional in-ground effect hover — are so strong that Bell Helicopter has made the FastFin® System standard on new Bell 412EPs.

Let all be known in the aviation business and especially in the rotary-wing arena that the Fast Fin mode is an enhanced performer. I know this by first on hand experiance when I had the priviledge in flying B212- N181W (212 that BLR moded) when my former company AirCam Helicopters leased it over a year ago.

It performed well at 12,500 ft behind Mt Blanc Colorado 14,000 foot peak; as a result, when we long-lined several tons of construction material at a building site for a customer, the conditions were 85 degrees with windy conditions and N181W was a stable machine when flown by the company's President/DO and myself.
Aware of the bell huey models which I have logged several thousand hours I have to say, "would never do without the FastFin again," it's an operators advantage when it comes to safety and performance. Long story short here, don't skimp yourselves short if one has the opportuinity to install a FastFin!
