Aug. 6, 2014, Langley, B.C. - Vector Aerospace Corporation has announced that its subsidiary, Vector Aerospace Helicopter Services-North America, has added the AS332L1 model to its FAA certified CVFDR Supplemental Type Certificate (STC). This is an addition to the FAA STC approval it received last year on the CVFDR for AS332C and AS332L helicopter models.
“We are very proud to add the AS332L1 to our CVFDR STC,” states Elvis Moniz, vice president, operations in Langley, B.C. “This is a unique offering which provides Vector Aerospace with a competitive advantage in the market, and we are pleased to offer the CVFDR to AS332L1 operators across the globe.”
The CVFDR retrofit package features a light-weight, solid state, low power consumption state of the art CVFDR with an underwater acoustic beacon and a six year battery-life warranty with an optional integrated Recorder Independent Power Supply (RIPS) requiring no additional wiring. A digital flight data acquisition unit is also integrated in the system, capable of accepting over 50 flight data parameters. The CVFDR system is rated at 50,000 hrs MTBF and meets part 135 operating requirements.
