Vector Aerospace has announced its completion of a modification and upgrade for the San Bernardino County Sheriff Department’s (SBCSD) Bell 212 aircraft.

Modifications to this aircraft included avionics, airframe, and tailboom structural modifications required for the installation of a new Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6T-3DF Twin Pac. Vector also completed a 100 hour return to service inspection and applied full exterior paint to the SBCSD’s specifications.
“We were happy to arrive at Vector’s Langley, B.C. facility to find our aircraft complete and ready to fly. Not surprisingly, Vector did a fantastic job on our Bell 212, providing top quality results and excellent customer service,” said Lieutenant Mitch Dattilo, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.
“This is the first major airframe project that Vector has performed for the SBCSD and we are honored to have been selected to upgrade their Bell 212 aircraft,” said Craig Pluim, Vice President, Sales – Rotary Wing at Vector Aerospace. “We look forward to growing our relationship with the SBCSD and will be pleased to continue supporting their future MRO requirements.”
