The Bell 412EP helicopter is now JAR-OPS 3 compliant after having completed an EASA joint operation evaluation board (JOEB) catch-up process, the U.S.-based manufacturer announced. To demonstrate JAR-OPS 3 compliance, an operator needs to properly equip and maintain a helicopter, operate proven take-off and landing procedures and show that the crew has obtained recurrent training. Bell now offers kits and training for its 412EP customers to become compliant. According to the company, a JOEB recommendation makes it easier for operators since the master minimum equipment list, pilot qualification training and operational equipment required checklist are completed and certified as compliant by EASA.
