First-time Heli-Expo exhibitor Archangel Systems is demonstrating tiny FAA-approved attitude heading reference systems (AHRS) designed for helicopter avionics upgrades at Booth No. N5532. The company also announced a major win yesterday, the selection of its AHR150A ADAHRS by MD Helicopters for the OEM’s new Universal Avionics integrated flight deck in the MD Explorer. “This is a brand new integrated cockpit system, and this is a first for Archangel,” said CEO Michael Greene.
Freedom Aero Services (Booth No. C2029) is highlighting its range of equipment repair options and solutions at Heli-Expo ’13, even though those systems result in fewer maintenance opportunities down the road for the company.
“We’re up to 25 repair processes now,” Freedom’s Wayne Burk told AIN. “Sometimes we even put ourselves out of business in certain areas because we find better fixes for [our customers] so they don’t need to visit our shop as often. On the other hand, we have a satisfied customer that knows they won’t have problems.”
