Floats & Fuel Cells has supplied the helicopter industry with quality fuel cells for more than 30 years.

Years of experience have won FFC the reputation as an organization that responds quickly and urgently to our customers’ needs. Whether the need is an expedited AOG repair, a custom modification, a quality overhaul exchange, or a new FAA/PMA replacement fuel cell, FFC goes above and beyond to provide the quality of customer service that the aviation community deserves.


FFC began as an FAA repair station (TH4R544M) servicing all fuel cell constructions. For the helicopter market, this includes lightweight bladder, commercial crash-resistant, and full MIL-T crash-resistant, self-sealing applications. Our customers have come to expect their repaired fuel cells being returned to service in an average of 7 – 10 days and for 25-50 percent of the cost of a new replacement. All repaired fuel cells are returned to service with a two-year warranty on any repair performed. Today, we continue to maintain an extensive exchange inventory to offer additional flexibility for customers out of service time constraints.



FFC manufactures FAA/PMA replacement bladder fuel cells for these helicopters: Bell 206A/B, Bell 206B, Bell 206L-1, Bell 205A/212, and UH-1. FFC is an FAA-approved Designated Alteration Station, which allows us to bring approved replacement fuel cells to market based on industry demand. All FFC FAA/PMA helicopter fuel cells carry a two-year warranty and are offered at very competitive prices. FFC is in Memphis, Tenn., the distribution center of the world that supports the delivery flexibility the industry demands. FFC has built the capability to ship products worldwide within 24 hr, seven days a week. FFC is committed to have the availability for all production inventories.


FFC will continue to offer all fuel-cell Services, and the industry can look forward to the continued expansion of our helicopter product line. FFC is always looking to improve the level of service offered.
