Dart Helicopter Services has announced that their affiliated partner, DART Aerospace Ltd., has received Transport Canada approval of the Full Vertical Reference Door Modification Kit for the Bell 204/205/212/214/412 of helicopters. FAA and EASA approvals are still pending.
The Full vertical Reference Door Modification Kits provide improved visibility of slung cargo in flight while simultaneously monitoring flight instruments. The kit comes complete with a full height bubble window, a new armrest and provisions for modifying the aircraft door and relocating instruments.
The Full Vertical Reference Door Modification modifies the customer’s existing LH door and requires coincident installation of dual controls and basic flight instruments in the co-pilot position as per Bell Helicopter Service Instructions and installation of an approved mechanical cargo hook release in the co-pilot position.
Large bubble window accommodates helmets
Bubble shape provides clear, non warped viewing
Bubble depth is 17”
Arm rest is adjustable for maximum comfort
Instrument panel adjusts outboard/inboard for personalized instrument placement and improved viewing
Improved visibility of slung cargo
2 Window vents per kit
Dart will also be adding to the Full Vertical Reference Door Modification Kit variations that would allow for the modification to be applied to the right hand door and also for a shallower comfort window to be installed either LH or RH instead of the deeper bubble window.

DART Aerospace has recognized and responded to some of the challenges presented by vertical reference operations with the Full Vertical Reference Door Modification Kit. This kit offers both a cost effective alternative to sourcing a complete door to modify and, with its 17” bubble, adjustable arm rest and instrument panel, the most user friendly configuration available.” Quote provided by Bill Beckett, General Manager DART Aerospace Ltd.
