Kenya Police Choose Donaldson Filter
February 10—The first AS350B3e in Africa is flying with the first Donaldson AS350B3e Inlet Barrier Filter (IBF) system on the continent. Donaldson Aerospace & Defense, a division of Donaldson Company, Inc., delivered the advanced filtration system via Eurocopter South Africa for installation on the Kenya Police Air-Wing’s new aircraft. Donaldson’s AS350 IBF will be on display in Exhibit 8451 during Heli-Expo 2012, Feb. 12-14 in Dallas, Texas. The Kenya Police Air-Wing joins Donaldson customers across Africa protecting their helicopter engines with Donaldson IBFs, including Council for GeoScience, Lady Lori Helicopters, South African Police Service, Government Air Transport Namibia, and New Resolution Geophysics/Wild Dog Helicopters, among others. Donaldson’s AS350B3e IBF Supplemental Type Certificate approvals cover both single hydraulic aircraft (PN#112005-101) and dual hydraulic aircraft (PN#121001-101) with the Turbomeca Arriel 2D engine.
