DART receives EASA certification for H145 Heli-Utility Basket

May 2, 2018  By DART Aerospace

Last February, DART Aerospace was proud to announce the delivery of the first unit of its H145(EC145) Quick Release, Heli-Utility-Basket to the lead AHI Customer, San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E). To best serve the end user, this project was completed with oversight from the FAA, with EASA validation expected shortly thereafter.

On March 19th, DART received EASA certification for the basket, only three months after receiving the initial FAA certification (December 13, 2017), and could not be happier to support European operators of the H145 and EC145.

The DART team behind this product was driven by the company’s growing presence in Europe, especially with the opening of the warehouse in Amsterdam. “We find it important to support our clients at proximity and will continue to strive for rapid certification turn-around – particularly in this case – with a product that is very popular in European regions” added Steve Ghaleb, Vice President of Commercial Operations at DART Aerospace.

This product represents DART’s 11th certified Heli-Utility-Basket, not including subvariants.
