RUAG Aviation upgrade improves safety and comfort of AS350
A comprehensive upgrade programme has been completed by RUAG Aviation on an Airbus HelicopterAS350 B3e. The modifications performed enhance the helicopter to provide improved all-round safety and performance, as well as tailored VIP comfort in its interior. The extensive modification programme performed by RUAG Aviation provides significant advantages over the original avionics system. The AS350’s pilots are outfitted with superior situational awareness through the integration of a Garmin G500H Electronic Flight Display and an L3 ESI-2000 Standby Indicator, and benefit from standardised cockpit operations through the inclusion of a Garmin GTN650 Nav/Com Dual Installation. Together with anew instrument panel, the standardised avionics supply pilots with an improved overview and enhance efficiency in the cockpit.
