EASA Approves Bell 206L and 407 Bear Paw
European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approves Alpine Aerotech Bear Paw Kit for the Bell 206L and 407 helicopters
Alpine Aerotech, February 06, 2017 - Kelowna, BC — Alpine Aerotech announced that they have officially secured an EASA approval for their 206L & 407 Bear Paw Kit, previously approved by Transport Canada and the FAA.
The Alpine Aerotech Bear Paw incorporates innovative design features that result in an extremely robust product.
The innovative, corrosion resistant clamping system enhances overall safety and greatly reduces total installation time. Constructed from high grade, UV resistant polymer, the 206L & 407 Bear Paws are guaranteed to retain shape through continuous use.
“The primary reason we prefer the Alpine Aerotech Bear Paws is they retain their original shape over time and do not fold-up. They are definitely superior in strength and longevity,” commented Barry Newman, director of maintenance at Alpine Helicopters.
The 206L/407 Bear Paw Kit is one of several Bear Paw Kits designed, certified and manufactured by Alpine Aerotech. Bear Paw Kits are also available for the Bell 205/212/412 and 429 with more models currently in development.
