Simplex confirm an order from Changhe China Avicopter for 6 Model 380A Fire Attack Systems to be installed on AC313 helicopters for firefighting


  • Simplex Aerospace receives order for six model 380A Fire Attack Systems from Avicopter China


Simplex, June 17, 2015 - Simplex is pleased to confirm an order from Avicopter, located in Changhe China, for six Simplex Model 380A Fire Attack Systems.

The systems will be installed on the Chinese manufactured AC313 helicopter. The systems are scheduled to be delivered in 2015 and 2016.

This order of Model 380A Fire Attack Systems is the second order placed by Avicopter, the first of which was delivered in 2014. The Model 380A is the first Fire Attack System developed for a Chinese manufactured aircraft.

Mark Zimmerman, president and CEO of Simplex Aerospace, commented “The AC313 Fire Attack project is another example of Simplex’s ability to deliver proven firefighting technologies for new aircraft; which is one of the reasons Simplex is the preferred development partner of OEM’s worldwide”.

The Model 380A Fire Attack tank for the AC313 holds approximately 4,000 liters, nearly 1,050 U.S. gallons, of water. The new AC313 Fire Attack system will use the Simplex Aerospace retractable hover pump. The retractable pump, which was purchased by Simplex Aerospace from Aero Union in 2012, is currently in use on the Sikorsky Firehawk and the Airbus Helicopters EC225.

The new Fire Attack system will also use a camera system integrated into an AC313 multifunction displays instead of cargo mirrors providing enhanced visibility to monitor the hover pump and door operations. The tank also incorporates features like data event recording, fire fighting foam capability, newly developed level sensors, and Simplex Aerospace's industry leading door system for wheeled helicopters.

Simplex Aerospace Fire Attack systems are regarded worldwide as a critical tool in aerial firefighting missions. Simplex Fire Attack systems are trusted by OEM's, private operators and government firefighting agencies for their durability, reliability, efficiency and safety. Simplex Aerospace is committed to producing the most technologically advanced certified aerial firefighting systems on the market with the features and quality that customers demand.
