GVH Aerospace supported Swiss Rotor Solutions to achieve the partnership with Airbus Helicopters to offer the Maximum Pilot View Kit (MPVK) as a factory fit and retrofit option for the H125 helicopter.

GVH Aerospace is the certification partner of Swiss Rotor Solutions.

The MPVK provides visibility and operational safety via a completely new design, providing the pilot with an uninhibited field of view below and to the right hand side of the aircraft. The modification adds a new single piece bubble door to the aircraft, offering a significant increase in lateral visibility and pilot headroom when leaning to the right, even when wearing a helmet. A large lower viewing aperture and transparent fuselage window fairing increases the vertical field of view forward, aft and directly underneath the aircraft by a factor of ten, compared to existing solutions.

The MPVK improves capability and safety for operations including sling loading, fire-fighting, SAR, EMS, confined area operations, aerial survey, seismic, law enforcement and any other tasks performed in close proximity to terrain, obstacles and ground crews or when operating at remote landing sites.

Swiss Rotor Solutions has completed the FAA, TCCA, ANAC Brazil and DGAC Mexico STC validation for the MPVK. There are currently more than 30 helicopters modified with the MPVK in service in Europe, the US and Canada.
