Victoria International airport, Canada-based helicopter manufacturing and MRO services provider VIH Aerospace has received EASA and FAA approval for its H135 left-hand vertical (bubble) reference window. STC 09-43 was previously approved by Transport Canada, the FAA and EASA for the right-hand configuration and now the left-hand configuration has added to its Transport Canada approval.

MRO sales manager Marc Leduc says: “Now the H135 can operate with either the left, the right or both bubble windows installed. This further adds to our existing bubble window offerings including Bell 407, Sikorsky S92 and Airbus Super Puma AS332/H225 family."

General manager Arne Arneson adds: “The addition of the left-hand configuration to our previously approved right-hand configuration provides H135 cockpit crews with unrestricted visibility from both seats, thereby ensuring safer and efficient helicopter operations.”
