January 18, 2008
jan. 18, 2008, Kent, WA – Geneva Aviation has received FAA certification of an advanced version of its popular P132 Avionics Switch Console. The console significantly expands the space in AS350 series helicopters for installation of electronic components widely used by airborne law enforcement and electronic newsgathering helicopters.

The new console provides wiring compatibility with electrical system changes recently made by the manufacturer in the latest versions of AS350B2 and AS350B3 production helicopters. It also enables improved compatibility with previous modifications of the AS350B3.

Additionally, the new console includes a collective lock fitting that provides compliance with Eurocopter Service Bulletin SB 67.00.37.

The industry-unique console provides space for a 10-inch stack of avionic components conveniently in reach of the pilot and crew. It can be delivered in a standard configuration or customized for specific mission requirements as a ready to install product. Cannon plug connections make installation and component change functions quick and easy.

The switches and circuit breakers are MIL-STD, eliminating often-unreliable push button switches and fuses. The console provides enough room for up to 60 circuit breakers as well as switches for added equipment. Switch legends are LED backlit and easily configurable when components are replaced. Night vision goggle compatibility is available as an option. The unit has an independent dimmer for maximum crew comfort during night operations.
