Genesys Aerosystems (Booth 8606) and its Russian distributor Heliatica (Booth 2307) have received Aviation Register of Russian Federation validation of the FAA supplemental type certificate for the HeliSas stability augmentation system and autopilot on Robinson and Airbus helicopters. The STC validation covers the Robinson R44 and R66 and the Airbus H125 family (AS350B, BA, D, B1, B2, and B3) and H130 (EC130B4 and T2).

“With a fleet of 476 Robinson helicopters and another 213 rotorcraft from Airbus Helicopters, we see a huge potential for Genesys products,” said Tatyana Dushenkova, general director of Heliatica.

Heliatica is also finalizing retrofit of the H130 with the HeliSas autopilot in cooperation with Heliswiss Iberica, a Barcelona-based MRO and Genesys authorized distributor and service center. Heliatica has been the Genesys authorized distributor in Russia and the CIS since October 2015.
