Gets EASA Certification For MD Helicopters

AEROSPACE FILTRATION SYSTEMS, INC.

(AFS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Don- aldson Company, Inc, has received a Sup- plemental Type Certificate (STC) from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for an Inlet Barrier Filter (IBF) system for MD Helicopters’ (MDHI) MD900/MD902 Explorer series. The cer- tification clears the way for MD Explorer operators to maximize engine protection while reaping performance and mainte- nance benefits available with an IBF. IBF-equipped MD900/MD902 heli- copters can freely operate with no engine inlet imposed flight or gross weight re- strictions. Corporate, air medical, law en- forcement and fire/utility operators have implemented the IBF on their Explorers. The IBF system for the MD900/MD902 Explorer features dual long-life conformal

filter assemblies, readily mounted on the existing inlets. Inlet bypass capability is achieved utilizing the existing MDHI by- pass system, which is part of the Inlet Par- ticle Separator (IPS) modification. Sturdy conformal inlet covers are standard with the system for added protection during non-operating conditions. The new IBF system is also available as a factory direct option on the MD900/MD902 Explorer. Donaldson Aerospace and Defense is the industry leader in the design, develop- ment and manufacture of high-perfor- mance engine IBF systems for commercial and military propulsion sys- tems. Through AFS, we manufacture cer- tified IBF solutions for the MD Helicopters MD 369H Series, MD 500D/E/F and MD 900/902; Eurocopter EC130, AS350 B/BA/B1/B2/B3, AS350’s

with Soloy or Heli-Lynx Honeywell en- gine conversions; AgustaWestland AW119 Koala, AW119Ke; Bell 205A1, 206B, 407, 206L-3/4 and 206L-1(C30). IBF systems for the Bell 430, AgustaWestland AW139, AW109 Power and Grand as well as the Bell 206L are in development. ❚
