Kelowna, BC (July 14th, 2021) — ALPINE AEROTECH, an international leader in helicopter maintenance and product development announced today that they have received a Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for their modular center pedestal /console riser for Bell Medium aircraft (Bell 205, 212, 412). They are also in the process of receiving their FAA Certificate for this modification. Aerotech developed this pedestal to aid in the installation of increasingly diverse Avionic configurations.
The pedestal riser allows for virtually endless combination of rack and panel mounted devices installed in the center pedestal providing total flexibility to easily switch from rack mount to panel mounts in just a few steps. Alpine Aerotech developed this elevated wedge-type design to increase the depth of the AFT end, permitting the installation of larger equipment. The resultant change in angle also reduces glare from ambient light sources and therefore increases readability of equipment installed in the panel.
“Avionic systems continue to progress, and requirements are continuously expanding.” explains Taylor Wilson, Manager of Manufacturing at Alpine Aerotech. “Ouur pedestal riser permits the installation of virtually any combination of mounting type, in any position along the center pedestal. We believe this type of customization is necessary knowing how quickly things can change in Avionic systems today.”
