HELICOPTERS ITALIA: Prima installazione, in retrofit, del sistema autopilota HELISAS ®.
1 Aprile 2016 – Helicopters Italia, stazione di servizio Airbus Helicopters per l’Italia, ha in questi giorni portato a termine con
successo la prima installazione, in retrofit, del sistema autopilota HELISAS® su un elicottero AS350 B3.
Tale attività è stata resa possibile grazie alla partnership instaurata tra Genesys Aerosystem, produttrice del sistema HELISAS® e detentrice del relativo Supplemental Type Certificate approvato EASA, ed Helicopters Italia, da sempre punto di riferimento sia in Italia che all’estero per la manutenzione e personalizzazione degli elicotteri Airbus Helicopters.
Il sistema HELISAS® permette la stabilizzazione dell’elicottero (SAS mode), grazie a due attuatori installati sugli assi di comando di pitch e di roll. Inoltre, in relazione all’avionica presente a bordo, il sistema prevede la possibilità di integrare modalità di funzionamento tipiche di autopiloti più complessi, quali:
 HDG mode: inseguimento di una prua impostata sullo Horizontal Situation Indicator (HSI) di bordo;
 NAV mode (VOR/ILS/GPS): Inseguimento di una radio assistenza VOR/ILS, oppure inseguimento
di una rotta preventivamente impostata sul GPS di bordo;
 ALT mode: mantenimento di quota.
Il sistema Helisas®, per il quale Helicopters Italia è Dealer per l’Italia, è disponibile in retrofit per i seguenti modelli degli elicotteri Airbus Helicopters: Ecureuil AS350 (H125) B/BA/D/B1/B2/B3 ed EC130B4/T2.Il Cliente Cav. Luca Marianetti ha espresso la propria soddisfazione per le migliorate prestazioni dell’elicottero.
