Three Eurocopter AS 322 Super Pumas, which Bristow Helicopters (Booth No. 1835) operates from Aberdeen, Scotland, to offshore installations in the North Sea, now carry TCAS II traffic collision avoidance systems, and the operator expects to similarly equip its entire Super Puma fleet by 2010. Bristow announced on Friday that it has designated the Sikorsky S-92 as its next type for TCAS II certification. The company also said it intends to install TCAS II on all its medium and large IFR twin helicopters. Bristow has developed the supplemental type certificate modification kits to make TCAS II available for other Super Puma operators.
