Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company (NYSE: TXT), announced it has received FAA supplemental type certification (STC) approval for its Bell 407GX expanded instrument panel  and L-3 Wescam MX-10 quick mount installation kit. The newly certified products are available through Bell Helicopter’s Aeronautical Accessories brand.

The new L-3 Wescam Mx-10 quick mount installation kit enables quick and easy installation of an L-3 Wescam MX-10 camera (not included). The camera can be belly-mounted aft of the lower wire strike cutter, using a dovetail quick mount. Controlled by a cockpit mounted hand control, the kit also includes a laser interlock. Installation or removal of the camera turret may be accomplished in minutes once the kit has been installed. The kit includes the necessary installation components, flight manual supplement and complete installation and maintenance instructions.

“The Bell Helicopter team worked closely with customers to solicit their input in the design of these products,” said Jennifer Lunceford, manager of Sales, Aeronautical Accessories. “The result is two innovative products that help customers meet specific mission requirements.”
