Alpine Aerotech announced that it has officially secured Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) supplemental type certificates (STCs) for its innovative tailboom baggage protection kit, specifically designed for Bell 205, 212, and 412 helicopters.
Previously installed as a minor modification, Alpine Aerotech is now pleased to offer its expanding customer base another certified solution product.
“The Alpine Aerotech baggage protection kit is light weight and very durable,” said Kelly Bean, director of maintenance at Hillcrest Aircraft Company. “This kit offers the best protection available in the industry and the installation is quick and easy.”
The tailboom baggage protection kits are constructed from leading edge material, specifically design to absorb and attenuate energy while providing operators with a weight savings when compared to popular protection alternatives.
