Mineral Wells, Texas-based Chelton Flight Systems (dba Cobham Commercial Systems) has obtained an EASA supplemental type certificate (STC) for its HeliSAS stability augmentation system and autopilot. The approval grants installation of HeliSAS on the Eurocopter AS350B, B1-3, BA and EC130B4 variants in European Union nations.

Cobham’s Prescott, Ariz.-based Wulfsberg Electronics unit has received a contract to supply its digital audio control system (DACS) for the AgustaWestland AW119Kx. The audio system will be installed on 15 helicopters that will enter service during 2013 with Life Flight Network in Aurora, Ore. Life Flight is the first operator of the AW119Kx.
