BLR Aerospace’s FastFin tail rotor enhancement and stability system has received certification from Brazil’s National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) for installation on Airbus H125 helicopters, the company announced on 15 August.

The H125 FastFin system was certified in late 2016 by the FAA and recently received approval from EASA.

The FastFin system uses advanced airflow management to increase the effectiveness of the H125 anti-torque system to increase load and aircraft stability, especially in hot/high conditions. Installation of the FastFin on H125 increases useful load up to 130lbs with a 10% improvement in pedal margins.

Benefits also include reductions in pilot workload, easier control in precision hover-hold operations and better management of the yaw axis when hovering in challenging crosswinds.
