Alpine Aerotech announced today that it has officially received Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) from Transport Canada, Civil Aviation (TCCA), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for floors protection and cargo panels designed for Bell 429 aircraft..
Alpine Aerotech has worked closely with domestic and international customers to ensure the kit is suitable for various operating conditions. Their exclusive protection kits are designed and manufactured with a high quality polymer composite material specially designed to be light, strong and energy attenuating, which provides additional protection to the aircraft. They are also compatible with auxiliary fuel tanks and / or bulkhead closures. They now feature a protective anti-scratch coating, which helps maintain the surface finish through years of heavy use and service.
âWe already have panel protection approvals for the Airbus H125 (AS350) and most Bell aircraft,â says Taylor Wilson, manufacturing manager at Alpine Aerotech. “We are delighted to include the 429 in our portfolio and to have other projects such as the Bell 505 underway with certification expected in the near future.”
