Company receives Part 29 approval for HeliTAWS
Sandel Avionics has
announced it has received an FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for its
ST3400H HeliTAWS wire and terrain safety system on the Bell 412EP helicopter.
Sandel’s HeliTAWS is a 3-ATI wire and terrain safety system
that incorporates the WireWatch wire-strike avoidance, a system that
protects helicopters from the nearly invisible threat of known wires, guy lines
and transmission lines. HeliTAWS also includes TrueAlert technology.
Other benefits of HeliTAWS include its
off-airport landing capability; high-resolution 3-D terrain display; Class A
HTAWS functionality; and available NVIS compatibility. Designed for all
helicopter operations, , HeliTAWS is ideally suited for such missions
as HEMS, oil rig operations, tactical military support, airborne law enforcement,
fire fighting and search and rescue.
