The Emergency Float and Emergency Float with Integrated Liferaft technology for the AW109 consist of: 4 emergency floats (2 emergency floats and 2 floats with optional liferafts) assemblies attached to the aircraft structural float provisions. This design also utilizes aircraft electrical provisions for the floats (float arming switch, float deployment switch, liferaft deployment switch, and associated wiring). The kit also contains, at the customers option, two 6-pax liferafts which are packed in the Fwd floats and have their own electrical inflation system. All the associated plumbing, hardware, and electrical components to complete the installation of the kit are provided. The emergency floats will allow the helicopter to land in water during an emergency landing. The floats are inflated electrically when the float deployment switch on the collective is activated. The Aft floats are designed to reduce the chance of a tail rotor strike during autorotation water landing. After a water landing, the two 6-pax liferafts are electrically inflated by operating either the center console mounted guarded switch or the overhead mounted switch. Only float system certified for the increased gross weight A109S. Other options available: - With or without integrated liferaft - Fixed Provisions only - Removable provisions only - AW109E, S, SP & Trekker compatible *Kit includes 2 Fwd & 2 Aft Cylindrical floats with integrated liferafts. Requires OEM structural and electrical provisions. Price is for complete float system. The Emergency Floats are not compatible with: • Snow Skis (Finmeccanica P/N 109-0811-99 or P/N 109G3271F01) • Sump Pads (Finmeccanica P/N 109-0811-73 or P/N 109G3272F01) • Aircraft installing the Rescue Hoist and Step Bar must be modified with the Finmeccanica Protection Kit (Finmeccanica P/N 109-0885-79 or P/N 109-0886-27) or the Apical Hoist Guard Kit (P/N 646.1000) Read less
