Kit Allows For Quick Windshield Replacement Or Removal
Transport Canada has certified the first ever Screw-in
Windshield Kit for Bell 206A/B/L/L1/L3/L4 model aircraft. Dart
Helicopter Services announced the certification award Sunday.
The New DAS Screw-in Windshield Modification Kit allows the
operator to replace the existing OEM windshield retainers with
quick change out retainers. While the OEM retainers are
riveted in place and are difficult and time consuming to replace,
the DAS kit provides durable retainers that are screwed in place
and that can be easily removed to allow for quick windshield
replacement or removal. After initial installation of the
modification kit, windshields can be removed or installed in less
than 2 hours per side.
The kit is compatible with OEM, AAI and Tech Tool
"The convenience of being able to change out a windshield in the
less than two hours means that every operator should be ordering
this kit whenever they need to change a windshield,” said
Bill Beckett, VP Canadian Operations, Dart Aerospace.
“Customers have been asking for this for a while and we are
pleased to provide them with a solution.”
