Advanced Aerospace Developments (AAD) GmbH, a joint venture of IABG and HTM, has received a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Part21J approval for minor changes/repairs and STC. The scope currently includes small and large rotorcraft.
IABG/Acentiss, as a large German engineering and testing company, has teamed up with HTM / Intercopter as a helicopter and airplane operator.
The combination of HTM´s vast experience in helicopter / aircraft operation and maintenance with the huge background of IABG/Acentiss aviation engineering and testing capabilities grants a highly experienced development and certification team which suits the needs of the market.
As a first project, AAD has developed and certified a supplemental type certificate for an external mirror system for AS350 external load operation.
This easy to install equipment grants blurring free sight to the external load and the belly of the helicopter, making external load operations easier.
This product will be available to the market by the end of the year.
