Emergency Flotation System

Applicable to version(s) : According to Service Bulletin
Emergency landing on water
Airbus Helicopters Deutschland proposes the retrofit of the emergency flotation system which consists of four emergency floats attached to the skid gear.
When landing on water the floats can be activated via button in the cockpit.
The inflation within four seconds is provided by gas stored in a cylinder which is mounted on the landing gear.
The flotation system is designed to prevent the helicopter from sinking when an emergency landing on water is necessary and keeps it in a stable position.
