The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) granted Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the AS350B3e / H125 FastFin Tail Rotor Enhancement and Stability System
BLR Aerospace, June 25, 2018 - EVERETT, Wash. – The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has validated the Supplemental Type Certificate for the H125 FastFin® System, clearing the way for installation of FastFin on Airbus H125 helicopters in China.
It is the first FastFin System to be validated in China, according to BLR President Mike Carpenter.
“We are pleased to continually expand the reach of FastFin Systems to operators around the world,” said Carpenter. “From improved stability to increased useful load, FastFin has a range of important benefits that can help operators fly more safely and efficiently in all regimes.”
The H125 FastFin System uses advanced airflow management to increase the effectiveness of the H125 anti-torque system for significant increases to useful load and aircraft stability, especially in hot/high conditions. Benefits include a useful load increase up to 120 pounds and a 10 percent improvement in pedal margins.
Thirty-five H125 FastFin Systems have been sold to date and are operating in seven countries. More than 1,100 FastFin Systems are flying worldwide.
