First Sandel HeliTAWS Fleet Installation

Sandel Avionics has delivered its first HeliTAWS helicopter terrain safety system to MSP Aero of Minneapolis, for installation in a fleet of Agusta A109 helicopters operated by North Memorial Medical Center of Robbinsdale, MN.

Incorporating Sandel’s TrueAlert nuisance-alert elimination technology, off-airport landing capability, high-resolution 3-D terrain display and Class A HTAWS functions, HeliTAWS is expected to increase the safety margins of the operator’s HEMS operations significantly. HeliTAWS is also suited to other demanding helicopter missions such as offshore oil rig support, tactical military operations, search and rescue operations and airborne law enforcement.
