Vector, L-3 Gain AS332 Flight Data Recorder STC
Canadian maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider Vector Aerospace is partnering with L-3 Vertex Aerospace on an FAA supplemental type certificate (STC) program involving a cockpit voice and flight data recorder (CVFDR) for the Eurocopter AS332 Super Puma. The STC allows Vector and L-3 Vertex, based at Whiting Field in Milton, Fla., to install the CVFDR in the AS332 series. The companies received the FAA approval in July and have already equipped four AS332Ls with recorders.
Vector Aerospace Helicopter Services North America has also reached an agreement with Canada’s Coast to Coast Helicopters to supply repair and overhaul services for Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6T engines. Coast to Coast supplies a variety of services supporting the offshore oil and gas, forestry, passenger transport, mining, SAR, medevac, tourism and training sectors of the industry with a fleet of more than 130 aircraft, with a total of 19 aircraft variants including medium, intermediate and light helicopters.
