United Rotorcraft Solutions (URS), and partner Ahlers Aerospace were awarded another FAA Supplemental Type Certificate on February 19th for their Night Vision Lighting modifications. This time the STC is for the Eurocopter EC130.
This modification incorporates filters that are externally mounted, improving day light readability and reducing installation time and cost. The external filters allow the modified component to remain generic thus retaining the advantages of local repair and/or overhaul.
This is the sixth STC for night vision modifications awarded to URS and Ahlers. They now hold FAA certification on the Bell 407 and 206 models and the Eurocopter AS350B2/B3, BK117, EC130 and EC135. STC’s are pending for the Bell 412, 430 and the Eurocopter EC120 and EC145 with award expected in the near future.
United Rotorcraft Solutions, FAA Repair Station UX9R241Y, provides aircraft completions and refurbishment services, systems integration, maintenance, component overhaul, customized interior installations and unsurpassed exterior finishing on most model helicopters.
