Swiss Rotor Solutions Receives EASA STC For Maximum Pilot View Kit

  • Swiss Rotor Solutions Receives EASA STC For Maximum Pilot View Kit


Swiss Rotor Solutions, December 21, 2016 - Swiss Rotor Solutions proudly announces that Maximum Pilot View Kit (MPVK), the next generation aerial work safety and visibility solution for the Airbus H125/AS350 helicopter family, has received Supplemental Type Certification (STC No. 10060578) from European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

The Maximum Pilot View Kit revolutionizes pilot visibility and operational safety via a completely new design, providing the pilot with an uninhibited field-of-view below and to the right-hand side of the aircraft. The modification adds a new single piece bubble door to the aircraft, offering a significant increase in lateral visibility, and pilot headroom when leaning to the right, even when wearing a helmet.

A large lower viewing aperture and transparent fuselage window fairing significantly increases the vertical field-of-view forward, aft and directly underneath the aircraft by a factor of 10, compared to existing solutions.

The MPVK dramatically improves the capability and safety to perform demanding operations such as sling loading, firefighting, search-and-rescue, emergency medical services, confined area operations, aerial survey, seismic, law enforcement and any other tasks performed in close proximity to terrain, obstacles and ground crews or when operating at remote landing sites.

The STC was obtained with the support of, and through working closely with Swiss Rotor Solution’s EASA 21J certification partner, GVH Aerospace, who will also support serial installations and continued airworthiness.
