Eurocopter selects Sandel Avionics as part of mid-life efficiency package for EC135 helicopters

Sandel Avionics, Inc., a global leader in compact, integrated display systems technologies, today announced that Eurocopter will offer its SN4500 Primary Navigation Displays and SA4550 Primary Attitude Displays as optional equipment on EC135 helicopters. Sandel products are now offered in Eurocopter's Blue Book, as part of the Mid-life Efficiency Package (MEP) for new production EC135 models.

Eurocopter is the fifth Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) in the last two years, to enhance their product offering with Sandel's avionics displays. Sandel's HeliTAWS® is included as standard equipment on the Sikorsky S-70i BLACK HAWK helicopters and on new helicopters manufactured by Korea Aerospace Industries.

Operators of the Sandel SA4550 Primary Attitude Display enjoy the ease of use and high-visibility features of the LED-backlit display technology, even in bright sunlight conditions. Intuitive pilot controls allow single or dual-cue display options and include additional convenience features designed to ease workload and make flying safer. The SN4500 Primary Navigation Display features the same high-visibility display technology, and includes added functionality and enhanced safety through its standard Stormscope®, traffic and datalink weather interfaces.

“We thank Eurocopter for its decision to choose Sandel for the EC135,” said Gerry Block, Sandel president and CEO. “OEMs and aftermarket customers alike continue to look to Sandel for avionics that are proven and bring value for the end-user.”
