SEI Industries Demos Bambi Max with Eagle Copters South America


SEI Industries and Eagle Copters South America hosted a Bambi Max Aerial Firefighting System information session that was followed by a demonstration using a Bell 407 supplied by Aeromax. The simulations included filling the Bambi Max with water from a collapsible and self-supporting FireFlex Pumpkin Tank, also manufactured by SEI Industries.


“The Bambi Max features a lightweight, low-power-draw, efficient multiple-drop valve that maximizes the bucket load throughout the fuel cycle,” explains Sergio Fukamati, director of SEI’s Aerial Firefighting Division. “The standard Bambi Bucket has evolved over the years and now the Bambi Max is the most advanced bucket system available for the fight against wildfires.”


The Bambi Max is available in 14 different models, each one with a different weight and capacity for water, retardant or foam. The Bambi Max Bucket capacities range from 180 U.S. gallons (680 litres) to 2,590 U.S. gallons (9,800 liters), and many are available with options such as the PowerFill Snorkel, PowerFill Max and Sacksafoam.


The Bambi Bucket is now used in more than 115 countries around the world by more than 1,000 helicopter operators.

Norwegian helicopter operator Helitrans has recently taken delivery of two Airbus H125 helicopters with digital logcards, becoming the first H125 operator able to manage the maintenance history of its aircraft components digitally. This results in better data quality, time savings, and simpler processes, thereby reinforcing flight safety.


These helicopters are the first two in a series of seven H125s ordered by Helitrans to be delivered with fully digital logcards. They will be used for a wide range of missions that cover powerline construction and firefighting, as well as sightseeing trips, passenger transport, photography and telecom network development.


A logcard is a document that tracks the entire maintenance history of critical helicopter parts, from manufacture all along their in-service lives. The digital logcard replaces outdated paper logcards, prone to loss and error, with digital content stored in a secured cloud. Airbus Helicopters first unveiled its digital logcards in March 2019, becoming the first helicopter manufacturer on the market to transform paper logcards into easy-to-use digital data.


“We welcome this innovative approach to logcard management, which is fully in line with Helitran’s vision of digitizing and simplifying processes within the company,” said Per Erik Nesvold, director of maintenance at Helitrans.


“Since April 2019, we’ve been progressively offering customers taking delivery of a new Airbus civil helicopter the option of receiving digital logcards,” said Jean-Michel Arlhac, project leader for digital logcards at Airbus Helicopters. “We’re thankful for Helitrans’ confidence in our new digital offering, and look forward to receiving their valuable feedback in the months to come.”
