Donaldson Aerospace & Defense, a division of Donaldson Company, Inc., will commemorate delivery of its 9,000th inlet barrier filter (IBF) in a special ceremony at HAI Heli-Expo 2018 on Wednesday, Feb. 28, with Robinson Helicopter Company chairman and president Kurt Robinson.
During the event, set for 2 p.m. in exhibit C1736, Robinson will symbolically accept delivery of the 9,000th filter, an R66 IBF, from Tom Newman, engineering director at Donaldson Aerospace & Defense.
Donaldson also announced that it has received snow approval for the IBF on the Leonardo AW139 type certificate.
R66 IBF certification was announced in February 2017. The System is available as a factory option from Robinson, authorized Robinson service centers, or Donaldson.
Donaldson’s IBF Systems lead the industry in preventing engine damage and are a key component for lowering aircraft operating costs.
