Call to confirm availability
Operators using a swing cargo hook system on their AS350 aircraft could potentially have an inadvertent loss of fuel if the swing frame makes contact with the fuel drain lever located on the belly of the aircraft. This critical safety hazard can deplete the aircraft's fuel level without the pilot's knowledge — leading to a life-threatening situation. Onboard Systems has developed and certified a Fuel Drain Guard Kit that helps eliminate the potential for accidental fuel release and is a vital safety improvement for this aircraft.
