MITSUBISHI AIRCRAFT OPENS SEATTLE ENGINEERING CENTER
Monday, August 3, 2015

Source: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries

SEATTLE - Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp has opened, and begun full operations with, an engineering and development center in Seattle, Washington. The Seattle Engineering Center (SEC) is part of the company's U.S. subsidiary, Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp America Inc. The firm said that the opening of the center will enable it to accelerate the development of the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ).

The SEC will work with the aerospace engineering firm AeroTEC in order to accelerate the MRJ's conformity activities and provide prompt support for flight tests in the U.S. The latter are scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2016 at the Grant County International Airport at Moses Lake in Washington. The SEC will have approximately 150 personnel, including some 100 engineers recruited mainly in Seattle and about 50 engineers from Japan.

"From the components that are being provided by our suppliers to the team that will be in the air and on the ground in Moses Lake once flight testing begins to the scores of engineers working in this new Seattle office, the MRJ will have a profound impact on the economy of Washington State," said Washington Governor Jay Inslee. "We look forward to continuing our support for the MRJ and seeing how our relationship with Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp can grow even further."

ROBINSON UPGRADES R66 POLICE HELICOPTER
Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Source: Robinson Helicopter

Torrance, Calif. - Robinson Helicopter has announced its R66 Turbine Police Helicopter with the FLIR Systems Ultra 8000 Infrared Camera and the Spectrolab SX-7 searchlight with 30-million candlepower has been reconfigured to include several upgrades. This high performance 4-place police helicopter comes standard with a Garmin G500H Primary and Multifunction Display System (PFD/MFD), a Garmin GTN 635 touch-screen navigator, and a Garmin GTR 225A COM radio. Also standard are Boland's 10.4 LCD monitor and two 6-channel audio controllers.

A new streamlined instrument panel houses the Garmin G500H PFD/MFD along with traditional instruments and dual audio controllers. With the G500H panel, the aircraft can be flown from either seat and dual audio controllers allow for independent radio monitoring and transmitting by the pilot or copilot.

To complete the package, Robinson expanded the R66 Police Helicopter options list. New options include Genesys Aerosystems' Heli SAS autopilot, Garmin's GTN 650/750 navigators, FreeFlight's RA-4500 radar altimeter which displays radar altitude information on the G500H PFD, Technisonic's TDFM 9000 radio in a variety of single to four band options, and Aerocomputers' moving map system with View Sync 3D capability.

A fully-loaded R66 Police Helicopter, the first to come off the line with the new configuration, will be delivered to Night Flight Concepts in Bedford, Texas. The helicopter will be one of Night Flight's platform aircraft for its Law Enforcement Air Support Entity (L.E.A.S.E.) program.

Base price for the R66 Turbine Police Helicopter has been set at $1,185,000.
