Canadian R66 Operators Can Now Fly Safely With DART R66 Emergency Float System


DART Aerospace, April 14, 2014 - Hawkesbury – DART Aerospace is pleased to announce that, as part of a bilateral agreement between the US and Canada, Transport Canada has confirmed that DART’s R66 Emergency Float System can now be installed in Canada.

The new float system designed and manufactured by DART, is the only emergency float system currently available on the market that allows R66 operators to safely perform over-water operations. The system can be easily retrofitted on in-service R66 aircraft and the float bags can be removed in just a few minutes for missions that do not require floats.

Brazilian (ANAC) certification is expected shortly.

Key Benefits:

  • Affordable system for all R66 operators
  • Easy retrofit on in-service R66 aircraft
  • Plug-and-play floats that can be quickly removed in 30 minutes for overland operations
  • Compatible with the existing ground handling wheels
  • Optimized floor space with reservoir assembly installed in the ceiling of the baggage compartment
  • Exchange program available to reduce downtime

    Key Features:

  • Manufactured from lightweight urethane-coated nylon with durable covers
  • Reservoir made of aluminum with a carbon fiber and fiberglass wrap to reduce the risk of corrosion
  • Stainless steel valve to reduce the risk of corrosion
  • Optional skidtube extension available to convert the standard skidgear to accept the Aft float
  • Lacing panel included to facilitate the repackaging of the floats
