Emergency Float Kits for the Agusta A119 model aircraft.
The Apical Tri-Bag Emergency Float Kits for the Agusta A119 includes 2
forward and two aft bags and additionally offers a baggage compartment
mounted reservoir option. This system is compatible with ground
handling wheels and the float bags may be removed in only minutes.
The Tri-Bag Emergency Flotation System is recognized the world over as
being the first integrated survival solution for helicopters. The
Tri-Bag system provides the most stable float platform in the industry
and, having been designed with aircraft recovery in mind, allow the
helicopter to be towed at approximately 10 knots. In an effort to
increase safety, the Tri-Bag system optionally includes external
integrated Liferafts with survival kits.
"As with so many of the Apical Industries designed systems, the A119 Tri-Bag Emergency Float System offers a myriad of features that have proven invaluable to our customers, including the tow-ability of the system, the exchange program, the longer overhaul requirements and the on-condition replacement of the float bags. Now our Canadian customers can also enjoy these value added features of this system," commented Jeff Shapiro, CEO of the Dart Helicopter Services.
