DART Helicopter Services announces that the Transport Canada STC for the Auxiliary Fuel Tank has been reissued in the name of their affiliated partner, DART Aerospace Ltd, and that DART has added this STC to their manufacturer’s approval.  DART Aerospace has also acquired the Brazilian and Australian STC’s from John Cameron Aviation.  FAA & EASA certifications are currently pending.
The Auxiliary Fuel Tank, originally provided by John Cameron Aviation, provides additional fuel capacity that can be transferred to the main fuel tank as desired in order to extend the aircraft’s operational range.
The innovative design provides up to 25% of additional range allowing you to go direct to your destination.  The Auxiliary Fuel Tank easily installs into the left-hand side locker with minimal modification to the aircraft structure; it can be easily installed or removed to meet the operational requirements of the helicopter.  The installation kit comes complete with its own electrical gauge and pump.  Additional provisions can be purchased to allow for transfer of the Auxiliary Fuel Tank between aircraft as required.
The Auxiliary Fuel Tank has a capacity of 34-40 US gallons/ 129-152 litres of usable fuel and is fully approved for all flight roles.

“DART Aerospace is pleased to have acquired the JCA STC for the Auxiliary Fuel Tank.  This innovative product is designed to increase the helicopter’s operational range while still allowing for versatility of easily removal, re-install or transfer the tank to additional aircraft.  This option makes it a cost effective option as it then becomes an accessory not just for a single aircraft, but for the entire fleet.  The Auxiliary Tank has been well received in Canada, Australia and Brazil” Quote Bill Beckett, General Manager DART Aerospace Ltd.
