Phoenix Heliparts, of Mesa, Arizona, has reinforced its relationship with RSG Products, of Fort Worth, to add to its supplier role for Supplemental Type Certificates. This move adds the MD369 helicopter to its list of approved installations, and covers the installation of Vapor Cycle Air Conditioning units, offered as an amendment to RSG’s existing STC (SR09251RC).
Phoenix Heliparts will be responsible for the design, development, certification and incorporation of the new model to the current STC. At the end of the development phase, RSG Products will continue to maintain the amended STC and PMA approval. RSG will manufacture the units, while Phoenix Heliparts will take on the role of distributor for the product line. Phoenix Heliparts supports a large customer base of various MD-model helicopters, and this new team effort is in response to MD369 customer requests for providing a new series of air conditioning units.
Tina Cannon, Phoenix Heliparts president, said, “We have been associated with RSG for several years, and believe this new addition to their STC for vapor cycle air conditioning systems will attract a wide audience for us. We look forward to a long and successful relationship.”
