Precision aerospace manufacturing company, Aerometals, announces the award of an FAA STC authorization for the Sikorsky® H-60 helicopter engine inlet barrier filter (EIBF) following a comprehensive testing program. Based on the original S-92 EIBF developed by Aerometals, the company now offers a significantly improved system to protect H-60 turbine engines from erosion, FOD damage, fouling and corrosion. Aircraft operating offshore or in salt-laden environments can benefit from a 96.8% airborne salt nuclei separation protection efficiency.
