SPAES and Swiss Rotor Services joined forces to promote the use of the Maximum Pilot View Kit (MPVK) for the H125/AS350 helicopters. The MPVK provides the pilot with an uninhibited field of view below and to the right-hand side of the aircraft.
SPAES holds now officially the Supplement Type Certificate and will ensure continued airworthiness in future projects for the installation of an MPVK.
The kit significantly improves the pilot’s headroom by adding a new single piece bubble door to the aircraft, thereby increasing lateral visibility when leaning to the right, even when wearing a helmet. A large lower viewing aperture and transparent fuselage window fairing significantly increase the vertical field of view forward, aft and directly underneath the aircraft by a factor of ten, compared to existing solutions.
