DART Helicopter Services is pleased to announce that their affiliated partner, DART Aerospace Ltd., has received Transport Canada, FAA and EASA approval for the redesign of their Top Mounted GPS Gimbal Mount for Garmin GPSMAP 296/396/496 for installation on Bell 204/205/212/214/412 aircraft models.
DART Aerospace has undertaken to update the design of their centre post mounted GPS receiver gimbal mount to allow the system more versatility in accepting current GPS receiver systems.Â Additionally, the GPS receiver mount can accommodate either a single GPS receiver, viewable by pilot or co-pilot, or dual receiver option allow for the simultaneous installation of two receivers that may be viewed by both pilot and co-pilot.Â The ball-mount system results in the receivers being adjustable to suit the varied requirements of all crew members.Â Once the desired position is achieved, the mount may be locked
The DART system installs on the centre windshield post and includes a mounting bracket, single or double ball mounts and socket arms.Â The DART GPS receiver gimbal mount is designed to accept the GPS cradle mount from the Garmin Yoke Mount which is either supplied with the GPS unit or can be sold separately as an accessory.Â With the installation complete, operators may mount their Garmin GPSMAP 296/396/496 GPS receivers in any aircraft then easily transfer the GPS unit to additional aircraft as required.
The DART GPS receiver gimbal mount allows GPS receiver unit to operate using the antenna supplied with the unit or, optionally, operators may opt for the installation of an external antenna.Â Additionally, the receiver unit may run off battery power or be wired to the aircraft system.
Allows for easy removal and reinstallation of GPS receiver unit
â€œWith the current industry focus on safety and situational awareness, the DART GPS receiver gimbal mount is an ideal mounting system that is STC certified, cost effective and functional for both aircraft owner/operators and for the crew themselves.â€Â Quote Bill Beckett, General Manager, DART Aerospace Ltd.
