Kallax Flyg of Sweden To Order PA100 PUREair Filtration Systems

Hawkesbury – DART Aerospace announced that Kallax Flyg of Sweden has provided a letter of intent to order two PA100 PUREair engine protection systems for their AS350 family of helicopters once the system has received EASA certification.

The PA100 PUREair System, co-developed by Pall Aerospace and DART Aerospace, is a totally redesigned, reengineered, and retested engine air protection system that takes the capabilities of its EAPS predecessors to the next level. Featuring Pall’s latest PUREair technology, the new system is self-cleaning and virtually maintenance-free, unlike other filtration systems qualified for this aircraft. The PA100 PUREair system will provide the highest level of helicopter engine protection while offering a 2% gain in engine power over conventional inlet barrier filters.

Metro delivers two EC135 aircraft to Mercy Life Line

Shreveport, Louisiana – Metro Aviation recently delivered the last two of five EC135’s to Mercy Life Line in Springfield, Missouri.  Mercy’s transition to all EC135P2+ Single Pilot IFR (SPIFR) aircraft began in 2012 with the delivery of three aircraft.  With the addition of the final EC135’s, Mercy opened new bases in Joplin, MO and Rogers, AR. 

The five-base operation has provided safe, rapid air transport since 1984 and has partnered with Metro Aviation since 2001.  “We share a common vision and mission, and there is never a time when I can’t pick up the phone and talk to the number one guy,” said Mercy Director DJ Satterfield.  “It is nice knowing we work with a company that wants us to succeed just as much as we do and we could not be happier with our completions.”

LAHAD DATU: A rescued rare Sumatran rhino was successfully translocated late afternoon on Friday from a very remote area in Danum Valley.
