Operators of Black Hawk helicopters issued under these eight Type Certificates are approved to install and operate the Helitak FT4500 Fire Suppression Tank. Further Type Certificates will be added in the coming months.
Offering the only FAA certified underbelly fire suppression tank for the Black Hawk helicopter in the World, the proven performance of the Helitak FT4500 Fire Suppression Tank has further been confirmed with the recent contract announcement by the Australian National Aerial Fire Centre where all five Black Hawk aircraft receiving contracts will operate with the Helitak tank installed.
Increasing the number of approved helicopters
Helitak previously secured their intellectual property with Patent and Design Registration applications submitted in Australia, the USA and other selected countries and territories around the world to protect their next-generation tank design and tank mounting systems used in connection with the FT4500 Black Hawk fire suppression tank.
Helitak CEO and Founder, Jason Schellaars, said: “This certification is so important as it increases the number of helicopters that are approved to operate the FT4500 Fire Suppression Tank, and as we head into Summer it means that these operators who are so instrumental in fighting bush fires, will be able to use our tank as part of their firefighting strategies.”
