Rotorcraft Services Group and Garmin Team to STC Garmin G500H for EC130, AS350

Rotorcraft Services Group, Inc. (RSG), an industry leader in helicopter
and aircraft services and Garmin International, Inc. have proudly teamed
together to obtain FAA Supplemental Type Certificates (STC) for
installation of the Garmin G500H glass cockpit in the Eurocopter
AS350B2, AS350B3 and EC130B4 helicopter models. Under this STC, any
authorized Garmin aviation dealer can install a G500H in a Eurocopter
AS350B2, AS350B3 and/or EC130B4 helicopter.

Ed Bolden, president of Rotorcraft Services Group based at Meacham Field
in Fort Worth, Texas said, “We are very pleased that RSG completed this
important STC project, allowing our customers to take advantage of the
features provided by the Garmin G500H, previously STC’d on other select
helicopter models. The entire Garmin dealer network can also benefit by
our production of complete field installation kits including mounts,
brackets, wire harness and instrument panel, allowing quick turn-around
for the dealers’ customers.”

The G500H is an all-glass avionics system designed specifically for the
VFR Part 27 helicopter market. The primary flight display (PFD) shows
attitude, airspeed, vertical speed, altitude and course/heading
information, and the multi-function display (MFD) has detailed moving
map graphics with the helicopter’s current position in relation to
terrain, chart data, navaids, and flight plan routings. The system
offers features like helicopter synthetic vision technology (HSVT), XM
WX Satellite Weather with NEXRAD, the ability to display video from a
forward looking infrared (FLIR) camera or other video sources, and a
helicopter-specific database with over 7,000 heliports and nearly 30,000
additional low-altitude obstacles in addition to the already extensive
obstacle database found in the fixed-wing G500 system.

“The G500H is a top-of-the-line glass cockpit for helicopters that
brings pilots lifesaving technology at an affordable price,” said Gary
Kelley, Garmin’s vice president of marketing. “We are pleased work with
RSG on this STC, and since any authorized Garmin dealer can install the
G500H under the STC, we think it will quickly become a highly
sought-after, often-installed helicopter avionics suite.”

Installations of the G500H in a Eurocopter AS350B2, AS350B3 and/or
EC130B4 helicopter can begin immediately and may take place at any
authorized Garmin aviation dealer. The PMA parts kit required for
installation are available from RSG, and the STC installation data is
available to Garmin aviation dealers on the Garmin aviation dealer site.
