By Staff Writer | February 19, 2014

FAA has issued a supplemental type certificate (STC) to Ascent Aerospace for the Ascent 50001C helitank system for the Bell 212. Forest fire management agencies around the world are making increased use of helicopter-mounted tanks, or helitanks, to rapidly attack wildfires before they can get out of control. Ascent’s 360 gallon (1360 liter) helitank features a retractable snorkel for rapid uploading of water, completing a fill of 360 US gallons in about 18 seconds.
