With the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) taking a stronger stance on the need for survivable fuel systems for civil aircraft, new, stricter regulations are being imposed. The FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 requires crash-resistant fuel systems for all new helicopters, with retrofit mandates sure to follow. These potential retrofit regulations could ground older helicopters that aren’t properly modernized with effective crash-resistant fuel systems. Robertson is committed to providing operators with optimal crash-resistant fuel storage options that keep their aircraft flying and delivering on that commitment with the CRFT.
As the world leader in fuel containment and ballistic tolerance, we stand by our AS350 Crash-Resistant Fuel Tank which meets, and exceeds, the most stringent federal requirements for operations.
