Eagle 407HP Receives FAA Certification


Eagle Copters, January 08, 2015 - The FAA has granted certification to Eagle Helicopters for its Eagle 407HP aircraft. The move comes less than two weeks after Transport Canada certified the helo.

Eagle Copters said in a news release it is extremely proud to announce the receipt of FAA certification for their Eagle 407HP conversion program.

By virtue of a Supplemental Type Certification (STC), the upgrade replaces the OEM-installed Rolls Royce C47 turbine engine with a ‘next-generation’ Honeywell HTS900 turbine engine, significantly improving the Bell 407 helicopter's high altitude and hot ambient temperature performance.

“We’re very excited about gaining FAA certification so soon after Transport Canada certification,” said David “Spyke” Whiting, VP Sales and Marketing for Eagle Copters. “We would also like to extend a ‘thank you’ to both Transport Canada and the Federal Aviation Administration for their close coordination throughout the entire certification program, without which, this monumental accomplishment could never have been achieved.”

Among the standout advantages offered to operators seeking even better performance from the Bell 407—considered to be one of the most versatile helicopters in operation today—the Eagle 407HP conversion introduces increased shaft horsepower, improving the payload capability and ultimately resulting in increased capabilities of the helicopter over a wider operating spectrum. Additional key benefits provided by the Eagle Copters conversion include increased speed, reduced fuel consumption, and the incorporation of a true dual-channel FADEC engine control system.

“This program would not have been possible without the excellent team we have assembled at Eagle Copters,” Whiting additionally proclaimed. “Our thanks go out to them both for their perseverance and for having the foresight to run the certification programs virtually in parallel.”

The company reports three firm orders have been taken over the recent holiday break with a significant increase in interest in the program.
