Donaldson Obtains Canadian Approval for Bell 206L Filters
Transport Canada has issued a supplemental type certificate (STC) to Donaldson Aerospace & Defense to install an inlet barrier filter (IBF) on the Bell 206L and LR variants. According to Donaldson, which is at Booth N6001 during Heli-Expo, the filters reduce operating costs and improve engine performance. The St. Louis, Mo.-based company is approved for IBF installations on the AgustaWestland AW109, AW119 and AW139; Bell 205A1, 206B/L/LR, 407, 429 and 430; Eurocopter EC130 and several AS350 variants and MD Helicopters 500D/E/F, 900/902 and 369H series.
