Chelton Flight Systems of Boise, Idaho, last month 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 the certification, opening the possibility of bringing the technology to hundreds of Bell helicopters flying under EASA jurisdiction, the company said.
