ATLANTA, Ga. June 5, 2013— Rotorcorp, LLC will secure advance orders and delivery of DART Aerospace’s emergency float system for the Robinson R66 Helicopter in North America. DART Aerospace, a Canadian based company that designs, manufactures and markets certified solutions for helicopters has designed an affordable system that features an easy retrofit on in-service R66 aircraft. d The FAA approval for this product is expected by year-end.

“Helicopters find work where the roads end. Utilization of the Dart R66 floats provides for over-water emergency landing capability, but also allows for pre-flight removal in thirty minutes when payload optimization is necessary,” said Dan Casey, president of Rotorcorp, LLC.

Since the introduction of the R66 line of helicopters in 2010, attention has shifted to the development of accessories aimed at broadening the operational capabilities of Robinson’s first turbine light helicopter.

The DART R66 float system is priced comparably to that of the company’s successful R44 float system at $35,500 for the standard landing gear option and $39,500 for extended gear floats. Rotorcorp is now accepting advance orders with a refundable deposit of $5000 USD. Once production commences, orders will be filled in a first-come first-served basis.
