China's Civil Aviation Administration has issued a Supplemental Type Certificate for Donaldson's Inlet Barrier Filter (IBF), allowing the technology to be installed on Airbus H125 helicopters in China.

Baoli Aviation is the first operator to install and fly with the IBFs in China. The company operates a fleet of six H125s (B3e version), two of which are already fitted with IBFs.

Baoli operates its H125s in a range of firefighting, agricultural spraying and load carrying missions in dusty and sandy environments, where quality inlet protection is essential to prevent damage to the helicopters' engines.

Dan Larsen, general manager, Donaldson Aerospace and Defense, said: 'Donaldson is pleased to once again expand the reach of our IBF systems and bring superior engine protection to H125 operators in China. We are also pleased to work with Baoli Aviation to introduce IBF protection to the country.'
