Eurocopter AS350/355 Receive Chelton Software Upgrade

6.0B Earns Additional STC Approval

The Chelton Flight Systems Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) recently approved the amendment to Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) SR02230AK-D, allowing software version 6.0B to be run on Chelton’s Synthetic Vision EFIS displays in Eurocopter models AS350 and AS355. 6.0B was TSO'd in December 2007 and is DO-178B Level-A certified.

Over 40 significant benefits are available for end-users, including:

  • ADS-B datalink display functions, including TIS-B (traffic) and FIS-B (flight information, including weather)
  • WSI Weather. Supported products include NEXRAD Weather Radar, Echo Tops, Graphical METARs, Textual METARs, Textual TAFs, Lightning, SIGMETs/AIRMETs, TFRs, and Winds/Temps aloft
  • Holding Patterns may be created at any fix or waypoint; entries are calculated automatically
  • Nearest ILS Approaches. One touch activates an ILS approach, sets the inbound OBS course, and sends the ILS frequency to a remotely-tuned NAV radio
  • Enhanced FMS Capability including vertical navigation (VNAV) and waypoint offsets
  • Vertical Deviation Indicator for RNAV Approaches and enroute VNAV capability
  • Expanded Hover Vector for Helicopters displayed with large radar altitude scale on MFD
  • Autopilot Mode Source Annunciation for use with existing legacy analog autopilots
  • Shaded Relief Terrain Depiction on MFD resembling a satellite image
  • TCAS-II interface and resolution advisory symbology
  • Basic ADI Mode for transition and training
  • FMS-Style Navigation Log for easy preview of procedures

"We’re proud to have achieved this milestone with the Eurocopter models. Software 6.0B truly represents state-of-the-art functionality and will make the AS350/355 flight management experience safer and more intuitive," said Chelton General Manager Jim Shirey.

In addition to STC SR02230AK-D, 6.0B is also available for new EFIS installations or as an upgrade to existing EFIS displays under STC SA02203AK Part 23 AML (400+ fixed wing aircraft models). 6.0B will also be available for EFIS installations with Mod 1 memory module upgrade as the software is added under the STC approval.

Software 6.0B supports the architecture requirements for Part-25 airplanes and IFR helicopters, opening the door for these approvals in the second half of 2008.
