Feb. 5, 2013, Kaleden, B.C. - VMR Aviation Ltd. (VMR) is pleased to announce Transport Canada certification of its Vertical Reference Window for Eurocopter EC 130 B4 model aircraft, supplemental type certificate SH12-60.

The New VMR vertical Reference Window allows the operator to leave the pilot door on, for any vertical reference work, while enjoying the comfort of the cabin according to the season. Partnership between VMR Aviation Ltd. and ATOM Helicopters Ltd, a BC operator, made this design possible. Installation for testing was performed by Okanagan Aerospace Ltd. in Oliver, BC.

“As the EC 130 B4 is becoming more and more popular for utility work due to its wide range of capabilities and the ergonomic left side pilot position, this natural born lifter deserved its own vertical reference window!” Quote, Olivier Combret, President, VMR Aviation Ltd. He went on to say “several Operators have been asking for this for a while and we are pleased to have developed a solution”.
