Transwest Helicopters Receives TCCA Approval for Medium Bell Replacement Crew-Door Rod Assembly
Transwest Helicopters announce the Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) approval of its Medium Bell Replacement Crew Door Rod Assembly. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval is pending.
The Transwest Helicopters TCCA supplemental type certificate (STC) SH19-36 provides Bell 204, 205, 212, 214 and 412 operators with a superior replacement crew-door rod assembly that is more durable and cost-effective. The replacement assembly is available with or without the yoke assembly.
“There are a lot of doors that come through our facility, and 80% of the crew-door rods are either broken or have the typical four holes worn through the rod,” explains Doug Maki, director of Maintenance at Transwest Helicopters. “Developing, certifying and manufacturing replacement parts that are more durable and readily available is how we reduce our customers' maintenance costs and keep aircraft operational.”
