Mecaer Aviation Group (MAG) announcedit has successfully validated their VVIP Bell 429 helicopter interior with the Agencia Nacional De Aviacao Civil (ANAC).
MAG achieved the original Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) with EASA earlier this year and continues to validate with agencies around the world. Brazil is the first of six (6) international validations applied for in 2015.
Multiple options and configurations are available for Brazilian clientele. Customers can choose from four, five or six seat layouts with options for up to two (2) center consoles, MAG’s proprietary I-FEEL (In-Flight Entertainment Enhanced Lounge) and passenger controlled Electro-Chromic Windows.
The interior includes two of MAG’s proprietary technologies. The “SILENS”noise canceling system has successfully reduced the cabin noise to a level where normal conversation can be conducted between passengers without headsets. The IFEEL technology provides passengers with moving jet maps and audio/ video entertainment, along with internal Wi-Fi interface to personal smart devices.
“Achieving an ANAC STC within three months of our EASA STC is no small accomplishment and a key factor in the success of the MAGnificent,” said Armando Sassoli, Co-General Manager of Mecaer Aviation Group. “The Brazilian market has one of the highest demands for the VVIP interior and the Bell 429. With the recent validation we anticipate a launch customer very soon,” Sassoli continued.
