Sagem Avionics, part of the Safran group, is at Booth No. 7517 celebrating Slave Lake Helicopters’ selection of Sagem’s Integrated Cockpit Display System (ICDS) for its new Eurocopter AS350 B3e. That machine joins three others in the Slave Lake fleet, an AS350 B2, an EC120 and a Bell 206 B3, all with the Sagem ICDS.

Slave Lake Helicopters operates from the Slave Lake Airport in northern Alberta. Owner, George Kelham said, “Our investment in the latest new technology aircraft demanded an ICDS with the capability to plug-and-play with all the high-technology performance enhancements on the AS350 B3e. Selection of the Sagem ICDS for our newest helicopter was easy.”

The French company also announced that Era Helicopters has agreed with Sagem to continue using its avionics Analysis Ground Station (AGS) service, a comprehensive flight operations monitoring system for FOQA that processes and analyzes aircraft recorder data to produce user-configurable, customized reports.

The latest iteration of the Sagem AGS will replace an existing Sagem system. The Era renewal follows selection by offshore operator PHI of Sagem’s AGS last October.
