Heli-One is offering its existing Super Puma and H225 vertical reference door with supplemental type certificate for the Airbus H215, the company announced on 30 May.

The modification enhances safety and capability for pilots handling sling loads, when visibility beneath and behind the aircraft is essential. The vertical reference door provides a large protruding window to improve the pilot’s vision, both downward and 180° horizontally and vertically.

The door consists of a steel peripheral frame that supports an acrylic bubble window. A horizontal member is attached to the lower part of the door to support an arm rest. The door is attached to the airframe with virtually the same hardware as the original crew door.

This installation is available for the left and the right hand sides, or both.

Eddie Lane, president, Heli-One, said: ‘We are excited to adapt this modification for the H215. Our design teams are known for developing versatile solutions that can easily be modified across different platforms and missions.’
