dart announces faa approval on the bell 505 emergency flotation system

May 23, 2018

DART’s Bell 505 Emergency Flotation System, being the first and only such system available on the market, has just recently received certification from the Federal Aviation Association (FAA). With TCCA approval issued in mid-February of this year, the system has started seeing its first deliveries.
With the strong, worldwide demand for the Bell 505, this TCCA, FAA and JCAB certified Float System is quickly becoming a key product for DART Aerospace.
“The validation of the Bell 505 EFS by the FAA in a relatively short timeframe reflects the confidence that the authorities have in the design of this product and the substantiating documentation,” states David Shepherd, Vice President of Certification at DART Aerospace. “DART appreciates the support we received from Bell in developing this product.  We are happy to see that the Bell 505 aircraft is gaining momentum and look forward to bringing other products to market for the Bell 505 in the near future.”
