Fits Bell 205/212/214/412/UH-1 Helos
Helicopter Services told ANN Monday the company's affiliated
partner, DART Aerospace Ltd., has received FAA and Transport Canada
approval of its newly designed 3-point Shoulder Harness Kits for
the Bell 205/212/214/412/UH-1.
These 3-point kits feature a Diagonal Shoulder Harness on an

The Integrated Kit (shoulder harness joined to lap belt) has
been specifically designed for rappel aircraft, and has a single
point metal to metal quick release mechanism. The Independent Kit
(shoulder harness separates from lap belt) incorporates a
distinctive large push button release mechanism which provides an
alternative to the lever style release.
DART notes minimal install time is needed for the kits, as no
cutting or sewing of the thermal blankets is required, and the
installation design utilizes transfer drilling and existing holes
in aircraft. The system meets requirements of US DOT Advisory
Circular AC 21-34 and of Chapter 9 of AC 43.13-2A.
