Swiss Rotor Solutions Maximum Pilot View Kit Achieves FAA STC
Sep 4, 2017
GVH Aerospace is pleased to be Swiss Rotor Solution’s certification partner, and helping Swiss Rotor Solutions achieve the FAA Supplemental Type Certificate for the Maximum Pilot View Kit (MPVK). The MPVK provides the pilot with an uninhibited field of view below and to the right hand side of the H125 / AS350 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 ten, 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.
