CRASH-RESISTANT FUEL SYSTEMS
Opening a New World of Safety
After decades of delivering world-class fuel tanks – produced adhering to strict military standards – Robertson is adding a new family of crash-resistant fuel systems for civil operators, opening up a new world of safety for the global civil rotorcraft community.
The Robertson team is proud to be working cooperatively with StandardAero (formerly Vector Aerospace Corporation) to develop and certify a new Crash-Resistant Fuel Tank (CRFT) for AS350B and variants B1, B2, B3, BA, D & B4 (EC-130) helicopters. The direct replacement tank incorporates multiple safety enhancements and increased fuel capacity.
StandardAero is a dynamic, capable, industry-leading organization with a reputation for excellence and integrity. The combination of StandardAero’s FAA certification expertise and Robertson’s leadership developing survivable auxiliary fuel tanks for military helicopters is a powerful collaboration that will bring an important new safety-enhancing product to the civilian helicopter market.
