DART Helicopter Services is pleased to announce that their subsidiary partner Apical Industries has received EASA approval of their Cable Cutters Kits for the Bell model 204B, 205A-1, 212, 214B, 214B-1, 412  and 412EP helicopters.  FAA approval has been previously received and Transport Canada approval is pending.

Apical’s Cable Cutters Kits provide a means of protecting the helicopter during a wire strike by providing the capability to cut a cable or wire before catastrophic damage occurs.  The kits are designed to reduce the possibility of a cable or wire entering the cockpit and to reduce the chance of flight control damage.  Similar cable/wire cutting devices have proven to be effective even during multiple wire strikes.  The kits incorporate both an upper and lower cutter and each cutter is designed with high strength cutting blades.  The Apical cutter designs are tested to verify the capability to cut a cable having a 14,000 lb tensile strength.  The kits are configured for Bell medium helicopters with standard or high landing gear.  An optional GPS Antenna Mount Kit is also available, which allows placement on the upper cutter deflector for ideal positioning of the antenna.

Kits Include:

  • Upper Cutter/Deflector & Uppers Cutter Support Struts
  • Windshield Deflector
  • Lower Cutter/Deflector & Mounting Support and Struts
  • Wiper Deflectors
