VISTA, Calif., 2 Sept. 2013. Eurocopter engineers sought quality displays for the company’s Mid-life Efficiency Package (MEP) for new production EC135 model helicopters. They found their solution at Sandel Avionics Inc., a global provider of compact, integrated display systems technologies in Vista, Calif.
SN4500 Primary Navigation Displays and SA4550 Primary Attitude Displays from Sandel Avionics are listed as optional equipment on Eurocopter EC135 helicopters in the company’s Blue Book.
The Eurocopter EC135 is a popular twin-engine helicopter platform for law-enforcement, ambulance, search-and-rescue, and first-responder applications.
“OEMs and aftermarket customers alike continue to look to Sandel for avionics that are proven and bring value for the end-user,” says Sandel President and CEO Gerry Block.
Designed to ease pilot workload and make flying safer, the Sandel SA4550 Primary Attitude Display features LED-backlit technology and provides pilots with ease of use, intuitive pilot controls, single- or dual-cue display options, and high visibility, even in bright sunlight conditions.
The Sandel SN4500 Primary Navigation Display features the same high-visibility display technology with added functionality and enhanced safety via traffic and datalink weather interfaces.
