Latitude Technologies announced today that Norway-based Airlift AS, an international dealer for Latitude, has successfully obtained EASA STC “10028603” for the installation of Latitude Technologies’ SkyNode S200 satellite communications system.  The STC covers installations in the Eurocopter AS 365 and EC 155 helicopters.   Airlift AS completed an STC and installation on the Eurocopter AS332 last year for its aircraft based in extremely remote areas near and above the Arctic Circle where reliable communications and flight tracking are highly critical to aircraft logistics, SAR operations and safety.  The SkyNode S200 can be installed by Airlift at their Førde Airport, Norway facility or by any EASA Part 145 repair station worldwide.
“We have had very favourable results with the installation of the S200-021 in the Super Puma last year prompting us to repeat the EASA certification program in the Dauphin”, said Arild Ryland head of design for Airlift AS.
Mark Insley, Latitude’s President commented, “We are extremely pleased that Airlift AS has selected the S200 SkyNode for installation in their AS 365 helicopter. This speaks volumes for the confidence our customers show in our products and service everywhere.”
