Airbus Helicopters is offering its current crash resistant fuel system (CRFS) retrofit solution for the AS350 B3 and EC130 B4 helicopter models, the company announced on 5 March.

The AS350 B3 and EC130 B4 are the earlier variants of H125 and H130 models, respectively.

These kits will complement the existing Airbus retrofit solution for the AS350 B3e, which was first made available as an option for newly manufactured helicopters in 2014. The new Airbus B3 and B4 retrofit kits will be available to customers by early 2020.

Any Airbus H125 or H130 family helicopter in service today that does not have a CRFS can be equipped with one through either an Airbus or third party approved retrofit solution, based on the model. Airbus expects to have CRFS as standard on all new-built H125s worldwide by 2020.

Currently, all H125s coming off the company’s final assembly line in Columbus, Mississippi are equipped with CRFS. The H130 has come standard with a CRFS since its entry into service in 2012.
