Awarded "Partner In Safety" Honors
ACROHELIPRO Global Services Inc.
recently received recognition from the Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) as a "Partner in Safety," resulting from the
company’s substantial contribution to the Automatic Dependant
Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) program trial, which the FAA
recently integrated into the US Automatic Dependant
Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) program.
ACROHELIPRO tells ANN it successfully performed more than 450
ADS-B glass cockpit and avionics installations during the Alaska
Capstone program trial, and has become recognized as the industry
leader for carrying out the equipment installations.
"We have valuable experience that comes with completing 450
system installations, and the expertise acquired from working on
the initial integration and subsequent trouble-shooting processes
that were derived from the implementation of this highly-technical
system," explains Elvis Moniz, Director of Avionics.
An additional advantage for operators as the technology spreads
throughout North America, is that ACROHELIPRO can perform the ADS-B
installation from either of its two avionics facilities; located in
Andalusia, Alabama and Langley, British Columbia.
ACROHELIPRO Global Services Inc. provides comprehensive
helicopter maintenance, repair and overhaul services including
engines, avionics, dynamic components, accessories and
