DART Aerospace has received supplemental type certificate (STC) updates from Transport Canada Civil Aviation, the FAA and EASA for improvements to its quick release Heli Utility Basket for Airbus AS355 and AS350 helicopters.

The new basket has a larger, curve-top lid, which adds 30% more storage space; the lid is available as a retrofit option for long baskets using the light or heavy-duty flat lid. Other additions include an optional ground-handling wheel for easy manoeuvring and double-locking quick-release pins, also available for retrofit.

Its quick-release system allows it to be installed or removed quickly without tools by one person.
