DART Aerospace recently received approvals from the Dirección General de Aeronáutica Civil (DGAC) of Mexico for three supplemental type certified products, including the Emergency Float System for the Bell 505, as well as Door Modification Kits and Cargo Mirror and Pulse Light Kits for the Bell Medium series. Dart explains these products are the first of their kind to be approved for use in the Mexican aviation market.
The Bell 505 Emergency Float System, which provides added safety for overwater helicopter operations, is available as a factory-installed option or an aftermarket conversion. It also includes a kit with forward, mid and aft floats.
The DART Door Modification Kits cover a range of options for the Bell 204/205/212/214/412 series aircraft, including cabin door rollers, replacement door tracks, bearing overhaul, brackets for in-flight open-door operations, easy-to-use handles, supports to reduce in-flight vibrations and automatic door openers.
The DART Dual Cargo Mirror Installation Kit mounts to the nose of the Bell 204/205/210/212/214/412/AB412/AB412EP series aircraft to provide what DART describes as better viewing for external load operations.
The LED Pulse Light Kit mounts to the frame of the Cargo Mirror Installation to provide forward conspicuity lighting. DART explains this installation increases both ease of use and safety of the aircraft.
“We are excited about expanding DART’s footprint in Mexico with the introduction of these three products,” said Jose Miguel Fernandez-Busto, DART’sregional sales manager for Latin America. “DART is proud to support the Bell fleet and will continue to grow its offering within Mexico over the years to come.”
