Just a few days ago, DART received a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification on its EC130/H130 Cable Cutter System.
The kit has also been approved by Transport Canada. Combined with the original Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) STC, received at the beginning of August, this allows more than 75% of EC130/H130 operating globally today to retrofit their aircraft with a cable cutter system.
With growing requirements for systems to mitigate risks of wire strikes, particularly for aircraft in firefighting and operating in an urban environment, this kit should be a welcome option for EC130/H130 operators looking to put those aircraft to work.
Guardian Flight just recently completed installation of the DART kit and has committed to retrofitting their existing fleet of H130s.
“Working with DART was a great experience,” states Sean Erhardt, Director of Completions at Guardian Flight. “They helped us with our need for a cable cutter system on our new H130 fleet and kept us informed throughout the product development process.”
