Dart Announces Indonesian Approval of Apical’s AW109E/AW109S Emergency Float Systems


DART Helicopter Services is pleased to announce that their subsidiary partner Apical Industries has received approval of their A109E/S Emergency Float Systems in the Republic of Indonesia.

Both the Emergency Float and the Emergency Float with Liferafts Systems offer A109E/S operators increased safety for their crew, passengers and aircraft in the event of an emergency water landing.  The 2 fwd and 2 aft cylindrical floats are inflated electrically when the float deployment switch is activated.  After a water landing, the two optional integrated 6-man liferafts are electrically inflated by operating either the center console mounted guarded switch or the overhead mounted switch. Other design features include:

  • Efficient installation – installation assemblies are easily connected to OEM structural float and electrical provisions
  • Patented integrated Liferaft system – conserves valuable cabin space and provides a significant safety benefit over cabin mounted options
  • Safer autorotation water landing- aft float is designed to reduce the chance of a tail rotor strike during autorotation water landing
  • Exchange program – available for floats, liferafts and reservoir valve assemblies, reduces aircraft out of service time.
  • Increased Gross Weight – Only float system certified for the increased gross weight A109S.
