General Information

DART AS350/AS355 Emergency Float Systems are the only float systems certified for take off after water landing for the Airbus AS350. This system is now available with two 6-man Liferafts integrated into the Aft Floats. The float bags are on-condition and do not have to be returned to the factory for recertification. Factory recertification of the system is available for customers who desire OEM services. 18 month inspection of float bags lowers ongoing maintenance costs of the system. The Fwd, Mid and Aft floats are fastened to the skidtubes using quick release screws, thereby allowing removal of the floats within 12 minutes. The hoses also have quick release features, facilitating removal if the mission does not require over water operations. . The mechanical valve system has no squibs or electrical requirements. 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.
