FAA Approves Shadin Fuel Flow Meter on Robinson R66 Turbine Helicopters


Robinson Helicopter Company is now offering Shadin Avionics’ fuel flow meter on new R66s equipped with Garmin GTN 6xx or 750 GPS navigators. The fuel flow meter provides real-time fuel flow data to the GTN, which in turn displays the fuel consumption rate along with fuel range rings on a moving map. Fuel used, fuel remaining, fuel to destination, and other real-time information is also available on accessory pages.


The installation adds approximately 2 pounds to the aircraft’s empty weight and lists for $6,800.


Helicopter Association International Introduces ‘COVID Clean Program’ for HAI Members


Helicopter Association International (HAI) recently introduced HAI’s COVID Clean Program, a project designed to help HAI members share their efforts to protect their customers and employees from


infectious diseases. HAI assists


participating companies by providing them promotional tools and support through social media and other digital channels.


The COVID Clean Program provides a list of recommended COVID cleaning standards and policies that companies must agree to when signing the pledge. These steps include disinfecting the helicopter between flights and conducting


a deeper cleaning each


night using guidelines provided by helicopter manufacturers and health organizations. Additionally, COVID Clean organizations pledge to wear masks and other


appropriate personal protective


equipment when working with the public, and to maintain cleanliness standards in publicly accessible areas of the facility.


“We believe that most of our members are already taking these steps to protect themselves and their customers,” says





James Viola, president and CEO of HAI. “We want to assist them in publicizing these efforts so that anyone taking a flight is aware that the company takes their health seriously. Taking the COVID Clean Pledge provides these companies with tools to publicize and demonstrate their commitment to the health and safety of their passengers and crew in a visible and reassuring way.” The HAI COVID Clean Pledge reads:


As a helicopter operator, we affirm that our highest priority is the safety of our customers, our crew, and the public. We are committed to ensuring that our passengers are protected in every possible manner. Therefore, we pledge to: • Meet or exceed any applicable federal, state, or municipal regulation introduced to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases.


• •


Disinfect our aircraft, according to manufacturer recommendations, between every flight.


Conduct a deeper cleaning of our aircraft every night, according to manufacturer recommendations, or as often as necessary.


Continuously clean or disinfect our waiting area, our counters, our restrooms, and any other publicly accessible area of our facility.


• Require our flight and ground crews


to use masks and gloves as long as recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and/or the World Health Organization (WHO).


• Avoid transporting anyone who is visibly ill during our check-in process.


• Recommend the use of masks and gloves to our passengers, making these personal protective equipment (PPE) items available to those who need them.


“HAI members know what they’re doing when it comes to tour, charter, and corporate flights,” adds Viola. “We expect that increased cleaning standards will become the new norm for public-facing companies. The more quickly we can help them build confidence among their passengers, the more quickly our industry can return levels.”
