Genesys Aerosystems, a Moog Inc. company, announced today that it has received full EASA certification approval for the HeliSAS® Autopilot and Stability Augmentation System on the Bell 505 platform. The EASA approval covers both 2-axis and 3-axis configurations.
The new certification approval is in addition to the existing FAA STC plus CAA and ANAC approvals for the HeliSAS® on the Bell 505.
“The Bell 505 is highly successful worldwide, and Genesys wants to ensure the safety enhancing HeliSAS® system is also available in Europe,” stated Jamie Luster, Director of Sales and Marketing. “We look forward to continuing to strengthen our cooperation with Bell on other foreign certifications as needed.”
“We are thrilled to accept EASA type certification of Genesys Autopilot in the Bell 505,” said Duncan Van De Velde, Managing Director, Europe. “The autopilot kit is useful for pilots because it enhances safety and eases pilot workload. Any fielded Bell 505 in Europe can now be retrofitted with Genesys’s system, and we look forward to meeting our customers’ needs.”
Orders can be placed now through the Bell factory for new aircraft and Genesys approved dealers for retrofit.
