Bell Helicopter's Aeronautical Accessories brand has added the Crew Mobility Restraint Kit for the Bell 412 and Bell 412EP. The kit recently received a FAA supplemental type certificate.
The kit is a fall-protection safety feature for law enforcement and search and rescue operators working near open rotorcraft doors. It has an 80-inch webbing assembly on a retractable, locking inertial reel.
Bell recently completed a demonstration tour of the 412EPI in Vietnam.
