StandardAero offering StableLight demo flights at Heli-Expo

Estimated reading time3 minutes, 28 seconds.

StandardAero is unveiling the industry’s first 4-axis autopilot available for retrofit on AS350 helicopters with demonstration flights at the 2022 HAI/Heli-Expo on March 8-10.The autopilot, developed in partnership with Thales and known as StableLight, is equipped in an AS350 test rotorcraft which will be located at the Dallas Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center Vertiport and available for onsite customer demo flights during the exposition.

StableLight is currently in the process of certification. StandardAero anticipates that the StableLight Supplemental Type Certification (STC) will receive FAA certification this summer and shortly thereafter, the STC will also be approved by EASA and Transport Canada.

During the HAI/Heli-expo, StandardAero and Thales are inviting AS350/H125 helicopters operators and owners to fly and test StableLight for themselves.Any AS350/H125 helicopter operator attending HAI or with facilities in Western United States may request a demonstration flight at or after HAI as the helicopter returns to its home base in Vancouver, Canada.

“These flight demos will enable operators to feel the advantages of a true 4-axis autopilot.They will experience its hands-off capabilities and see how pilot workload is reduced while both mission efficiency and safety are significantly increased,” said Christian Blagborne, Technical Sales Manager for StandardAero’s Helicopters business unit.
