GVH Aerospace Supports WheelTug's Flight Test Campaign

Sep 9, 2020

GVH Aerospace is pleased to support WheelTug plc’s baseline loads development flight testing with a successful campaign conducted over the weekend in Memphis, USA. Supporting WheelTug and working closely with Stirling Dynamics, QuickSilver Aerospace LLC and Avenger Aerospace Solutions, Inc., GVH Aerospace developed the Flight Conditions and issued the EASA Permit to Fly to enable the category 2 flight test to be conducted on a Spanish registered 737-800, EC-MTV. As the flight was conducted in US airspace, we worked together with Avenger and WheelTug to obtain a FAA Special Flight Authorization for operating a foreign registered aircraft with a temporarily invalidated certificate of airworthiness. According to EASA rules the flight was captained and flown under our Flight Test Operations Manual by Nova Systems Europe category 1 test pilot Tim Butler. A true team effort with everyone coming together to overcome many obstacles, and a strong testament to our EASA Flight Test partnership with Nova Systems coupled with GVH Aerospace approving the Conditions and issuing the Permit to Fly. WheelTug are running an online live demonstration of their unique and innovative e-Taxiing system in Memphis on 15th September 2020.

GVH Aerospace Supplies Sea Tray to French Navy for AS365N3 Naval Helicopters

Aug 22, 2020

GVH Aerospace’s sea tray product has been selected by Heli-Union for the French Navy’s interim naval helicopter program. The French Navy will lease 12 AS365 Dauphin helicopters to bridge the period between the withdrawal from service of the Alouette III helicopter and the arrival of the H160M Guépard helicopter.

The GVH Aerospace sea tray product is a highly customisable and padded water proof barrier designed to contain and drain water from the aircraft cabin during over-water hoisting operations.

The product is used around the world for search and rescue operations and military use with clients including the Korean Coast Guard for the KCG-1, the Australian Defence Force’s for its fleet of H135 helicopters, and is operating with a Scandinavian military operator.

Its flexible design enables it to be installed and removed in flight and packed away for storage onboard, or be installed prior to flight and fitted around cabin equipment and seats.

“We are pleased to partner with the Heli-Union team to supply our sea tray product as part of the French Navy interim naval helicopter program. Although we have been producing the sea tray product for use by many helicopter operators for the last 10 years, the selection of our sea tray by Heli-Union for the French Navy is a significant validation of our product”, said Gareth Dyer, CEO, GVH Aerospace.

The sea tray is installed and removed in minutes without the need for tools and can be adapted to different helicopter cabin configurations and operator requirements.

Designed to withstand the rigours of search and rescue operations and military use, the GVH Aerospace sea tray is currently being used on helicopter types including Leonardo AW139, H135, AS332/H225 Super Puma, S-92, and S-76.
