DART Helicopter Services Announces EASA Approval of its Cable Cutters Kit for A119/AW119MKII Model Helicopters

Hawkesbury, ON – December 10, 2012 - DART Helicopter Services is pleased to announce EASA approval of its A119/AW119MKII Cable Cutters Kit.  FAA approval was previously received and Transport Canada approval is pending.

The Cable Cutters Kit offered by DART provides a more affordable option compared to other kits on the market.  This new approval is a welcome addition to our expanding line of products available for European operators.

The A119 Cable Cutters Kit provides a means of protecting the helicopter during a cable/wire strike by providing the capability to cut a cable/wire before catastrophic damage occurs. The kit is designed to reduce the possibly of a cable/wire entering the cockpit and to reduce the chance of flight control damage. Similar cable/wire cutting devices have proven to be effective even during multiple wire strikes. The kit incorporates both an upper and lower cutter and each cutter is designed with high strength cutting blades. The cutter design was tested to verify the capability to cut multiple cables with a combined tensile strength of 32,100 lbs. The kit also contains machined deflectors for the wiper posts and fresh air scoop.
