CRFT certified by Transport Canada
Already certified by the US Federal Aviation Administration and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, the CRFT features a durable composite material container that is strategically reinforced in the most susceptible areas to distribute impact loads in an accident.
The tank is fully compliant with Part 27.952 fuel system crash resistance requirements both with and without cargo swing/hook equipment installed. The CRFT is field retrofittable and requires no intrusive structural modifications
Elvis Moniz, StandardAero’s vice president of business development for airframe and avionics solutions, said: ‘With nearly 600 AS350’s flying in Canada, roughly 75% of which are legacy variants for which no other CRFS solution exists, there is a clear safety gap which we are intent on addressing, so we are extremely pleased to now have a certified solution in Canada to begin retrofitting these aircraft.
‘In order to maintain their value, these older machines must remain competitive with newer aircraft being delivered into the market which come standard with CRFS technology. The StandardAero and Robertson CRFT provides a solution to extend the lifetime of our customers’ legacy fleets with modern, lifesaving technology which is becoming the standard for civilian helicopter operations worldwide.’
