DART Aerospace Gets EASA Certification for the H145 (EC145) Heli-Utility Basket
DART receives EASA certification for its H145 (EC145) Quick Release, Heli-Utility-Basket™ on March 19, only three months after receiving the initial FAA certification (Dec. 13, 2017), and is now able to support European operators of the H145 and EC145.
DART Aerospace announced the delivery of the first unit of its H145 (EC145) Quick Release, Heli-Utility-Basket™ to the lead AHI customer, San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E), this past February. To best serve the end user, the project was completed with oversight from the FAA.
The DART team behind the product was driven by the company’s growing presence in Europe, especially with the opening of the warehouse in Amsterdam. “We find it important to support our clients at proximity and will continue to strive for rapid certification turn-around—particularly in this case—with a product that is very popular in European regions,” says Steve Ghaleb, vice president of Commercial Operations at DART Aerospace.
The product represents DART’s 11th certified Heli-Utility-Basket, not including subvariants.
