AeroBrigham Receives FAA STC Approval for Bell 505 Accessory Fitting
Longtime helicopter and airplane service center, completion, and heavy maintenance provider, AeroBrigham, announces the completion of a new Bell 505 helicopter accessory fitting designed to improve safety. Developed as an attachment point for utility operations such as personal restraint harnesses during doors-off flight operations, the assembly is now FAA-approved as a supplemental type certificate (STC) component.
Each precision-machined aluminum assembly can be easily attached to existing Bell 505 rear-seat hard points and allows for two rings supporting a total of 600 pounds (300 pounds per side). The fitting can be used in any of the three aft seat positions and can be installed and removed without tools or log entries. Flight testing of the device proved that safety can certainly be enhanced for rear-seat passengers wearing restraint harness systems when operating with doors off in the Bell 505.
