Qarbon Aerospace Launches Helios Ice Protection System

Helios Is An All Composite, Electro-Thermal, Icing Protection System

Qarbon Aerospace has launched the Helios Ice Protection System.

This new system reportedly advances aircraft icing protection technology, overcoming challenges that exist with legacy systems. Helios is an all composite, electro-thermal, icing protection system that embeds a carbon fiber thermoplastic heating element into the leading edge structure of wings, nacelles, or empennages. Qarbon Aerospace views this technology as a natural fit to replace pneumatic boots, bleed air, and other legacy icing protection technology.

“Significant technology and manufacturing development have positioned Helios Ice Protection to be a leap forward in safety when flying into known icing conditions. Extensive icing tunnel and operational evaluation tests have proven Helios is an efficient, low power and reliable solution for icing protection,” explained Evan Young, Head of Engineering for Qarbon Aerospace.

Qarbon Aerospace has chosen to partner with AIR Group as the worldwide distributor of Helios. Together, Qarbon Aerospace and AIR Group will target airlines operating turboprop aircraft where there would be value in reducing the maintenance costs, replacement expenses, and operational limits imposed by pneumatic boots.

“AIR has been supporting turboprop operators around the world for over 20 years. Our team of highly experienced professionals offer class leading around the clock AOG service from our distribution facility near DFW Airport in Texas. We believe Helios brings our customers a whole new level of value and safety, and we are proud to have been selected as Qarbon Aerospace’s partner for the supply of Helios and look forward to stocking and supporting this advanced technology system,” stated Morgan Whitehead, Vice President of Operations for AIR Group.
