Donaldson gain European STC for AW119 Ke helicopters

AW119 KeDonaldson Aerospace and
Defense has been awarded a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) approval from
the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for an inlet barrier filter (IBF)
system for the AgustaWestland A119/AW119 Ke helicopters.

Donaldson inlet barrier filter systems are already in use by operators worldwide in corporate, rescue,
firefighting and utility missions.  IBFs prevent particulates and
contaminants from damaging the turbine, including very small diameter sand/ramp
grit and salt spray. Strong engine performance is maintained with IBF

No restrictions are imposed
for flight in falling or blowing snow or with visible moisture in non-icing
