Eurocopter has obtained an FAA supplemental type certificate to equip the EC130 T2 with Garmin’s G500H flight display system. Blue Hawaiian Helicopters is the launch operator for the program, with Eurocopter recently delivering a pair of T2s that will join the company’s fleet of EC130 B4s and AS350s. Blue Hawaiian, the first operator of the EC130 B4 back in 2001, has additional EC130 T2s on order. H-TAWS, synthetic vision and other situational awareness tools are available with the G500H suite.
