 - July 16, 2008, 5:06 AM

Chelton Flight Systems of Boise, Idaho, has received European Aviation Safety Agency approval for its FlightLogic avionics system for use in the Bell 206A, B, L and 407 light single-engine helicopters. The certification marked the first time EASA has granted approval for installation of Chelton’s synthetic-vision system, which provides a 3-D computer-generated view of the world on a flight display. Chelton worked with the UK Civil Aviation Authority to achieve certification, opening the possibility of bringing the technology to hundreds of Bell helicopters flying under EASA jurisdiction.
