Portland, OR, USA — Simplex Aerospace is the world leader in design, production, certification, and sales of aerial application mission equipment for helicopters. A 70 year old company, Simplex has over 185 FAA Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) for agricultural spraying, aerial cleaning, firefighting, and other applications. Since entering the aerial firefighting market in the early 1990s, Simplex has released over 20 models of Fire Attack™ systems (FAS) with models for most major helicopter manufacturer (OEM) platforms. Simplex recently certified the largest fixed tank helicopter firefighting system in the world, a 3,050 gallon internal Fire Attack™ system for the Boeing CH-47D Chinook, known as model 347. The system allows a pilot to select a variety of drop patterns and installation requires only four bolts, minimizing modifications to the aircraft. “With total water evacuation in under four seconds, it is the most cost-effective FAS available to operators around the world,” explained Mark Zimmerman, president and CEO of Simplex. As the danger of wildland fires rises around the world, Simplex continues to work closely with OEMs and operators to produce the safest and most effective fire fighting systems available.
