We are pleased to share our ground-breaking project, which has received the first approval of it's kind in Europe. We have created a new, streamlined, touchscreen cockpit display with the addition of iPad technology. The Garmin GTN 650 & GTN750 displays is coupled to the autopilot, whilst the addition of the iPad enables the pilot to access a wealth of navigation enhancements.

This project started life from as a new "factory green" AS350B3e aircraft, G-NIPL. The standard cockpit was removed, and updated equipment was designed and installed to simplify the area and improve usability. These works also included an overall completion of VIP interior and aircraft exterior repaint. Making the finished article completely bespoke and one of a kind.


Once complete, G-NIPL was placed on static display at Helitech 2013 next to our stand. News spread quickly throughout the show, and we were approached to develop this design further for another AS350B3, G-OOIO.

This new project needed some further evolution from the previous installation and so we began work on the design, integration, installation and STC approval of the Garmin GTN650 & GTN750 touch screen display.


Further improvements included a custom-designed and made swivel iPad mount and additional USB charging points. We were the first organisation in Europe to complete the along with the certification of HTAWS. And it doesn't stop there...

Due to the success of the previous two projects, we were then asked to complete a further AS350B3e, G-OGLE. This project has included a Garmin GTN650 & GTN750 displays, iPad installation on swivel plates for ease of use and an additional iPad Mini for pilot view only. The centre console was replaced with newly designed equipment which extends the height of the console. This was the latest works in our Garmin approved cockpit modernisation program, which has now been recognised with full appreciation not only from our client, but also from the industry - but our continuing drive for bigger and better has shown through. We are currently working on two new and major projects that we're looking forward to sharing with you very soon!

In the meantime, here is the finished AS350B3e, G-OGLE project in all it's glory.
