DART Helicopter Services’ announces that their subsidiary partner Apical Industries has received EASA approval or their new Cable Cutters Kits for Bell 206A, B, L, L-1, L-3, L-4 helicopters. FAA approval has been previously received. Transport Canada approval is pending.

The Cable Cutters Kits provide a means of protecting the helicopter during a wire strike by providing the capability to cut a cable or wire before catastrophic damage occurs. The kit is designed to reduce the possibility of a cable or 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 Apical cutter design was tested to verify the capability to cut a cable having a 14,000 lb tensile strength. The kits are available in either high or low landing gear configurations. An optional GPS Antenna Mount Kit is also available, which allows the antenna to be placed on the upper cutter deflector for ideal positioning of the antenna.
