Emergency Flotation Systems (EFS) are emergency systems installed on larger commercial and military helicopters in order to prevent the airframe sinking in the event of a crash landing on water. The floats may be packed within spaces inside the airframe or as externally mounted packs on the helicopter skids. The floats are inflated using gas stored in pressurised cylinders carried on board the helicopter.

Its expertise covers the design and integration of emergency flotation systems for helicopters, integrated life rafts, rescue kits and life jackets, as well as inflatable stretchers, composite containers, gas bottles, physiological clothing for pilots (anti-G protective suits
Emergency flotation systems are an important part of a helicopter, ensuring that they have as low of a chance as possible to sink or capsize in water during impact or a controlled ditching. To maintain flotation of the aircraft, helicopters keep pressurized cylinders inflated with gases that are stored for emergencies. A helicopter life raft is another critical component for safety, providing
A floatation system (10) for attachment to a helicopter landing skid includes a girt (30) dimensioned to be attached to a landing skid and a plurality of floats (90) attached to the elongate girt (30), wherein the plurality of floats (90) are adapted to be converted from a packed configuration to a deployed configuration, and wherein at least one of the plurality of floats (90) extends beneath
