United Rotorcraft Solutions has completed a custom Bell 407 for New Mexico-based Aero Tech, including new avionics, airframe modifications and an exterior paint scheme. URS installed a Garmin G500H cockpit display system, GDL6A satellite weather and GTX330 transponder, NAT audio control and other avionics and communication equipment. Other additions for the Bell include cargo kits, cargo hook capable of carrying a water bucket, and an Aerospace Filtration Systems inlet barrier filter (IBF).
Aero Tech will operate the Bell 407 in a number of roles, including aerial surveying, firefighting, charter and film production support. United Rotorcraft Solutions has also obtained a supplemental type certificate (STC) for Aspen Avionics’ Evolution flight display on the Eurocopter AS350B2/B3. The Aspen EFIS was installed on an AS350B3 for Memphis, Tenn.-based Hospital Wing for the STC program.
