The Brazilian equivalent of the FAA, the Agencia Nacional de Aviacio Civil-Brazil, has approved a supplemental type certificate for the Dart Helicopter Services Heli-Utility Basket. The basket, used to provide more cargo room by transporting equipment underneath the helicopter, may be installed on either side of the helicopter and can carry a distributed cargo load of 220 lb. The basket is good for heli-skiing. It has been installed on the Eurocopter EC130 and AS350/355.
