The European Aviation Safety Agency has certified the BLR Aerospace FastFin tail rotor enhancement and stability system for installation and flight on all Bell 412s. It was previously approved for Bell 204, 205 and 212s. The FastFin System improves useful load, wind azimuth tolerance and hover stability for Bell medium helicopters. “With FastFin installed, Bell 412 operators can realize significant increases in useful load, in some cases as much as 1,250 pounds,” said Dave Marone, v-p of sales and marketing for BLR Aerospace.
