Aero Design Ltd. has announced European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification of the cyclic friction for the Bell 206B, 206L and 407.
Aero Design offers the only option currently available for the replacement of the Bell 206/407 cyclic friction. With roots in the utility helicopter industry in North America, the part was designed for easy installation and setup of minimum friction with exceptional control of additional and full friction.
The historical wear components have been removed from the installation ensuring the initial purchase price far outweighs parts replacement costs of the original equipment manufacturer design. The EASA certification, supplement type certificate (STC) 10060712, complements the existing Transport Canada STC SH12-59, and Federal Aviation Administration STC SR032883NY.
Aero Design continues its expansion into the European market and this is another innovative solution for an issue frequently reported by the industry,” said Aero Design vice-president and engineering technologist Jeff Clarke.
