DART Helicopter Services’ affiliated partner, Apical Industries, received the approval for their emergency float and emergency float with life rafts systems for Agusta model A109E/S aircraft. Both models have FAA certification. The two forward and two aft cylindrical floats that inflate electrically when the float deployment switch is activated offer increased safety. The optional integrated six-man life rafts are deployed via separate electrical switches. This is the only float/raft system that is certified for the increased grow weight of the A109E.
