Simplex AW139 Fire System STC’d
Simplex Manufacturing has received a supplemental type certificate (STC) for its fire attack system on the AgustaWestland AW139. The Model 326 is the first firefighting water tank for the AW139. It features a tank-mounted video camera that gives the pilot views of the tank doors and hover pump. The water tank is operating under FAA field approval in Los Angeles, Calif. Simplex is planning multiple Model 326 deliveries this summer for use in Asia.
