Mecaer Aviation Group (MAG) has been awarded an EASA STC for the MAGnificent interior it developed for the Bell 429 helicopter. The interior was designed by the MAG Design Studio in Rome, Italy, engineered and certified by MAG’s own EASA DOA, manufactured at MAG’s Cabin Comfort Systems headquarters in central Italy, and installed by MAG crews in Prague, Czech Republic.
The interior includes two of MAG’s proprietary technologies. MAG says the SILENS noise-canceling system reduces cabin noise to a level where normal conversation can be conducted between passengers without headsets. Meanwhile, the IFEEL system provides passengers with a moving map, audio and video entertainment along with internal wi-fi interface to smart devices.
“Achieving this goal within nine months of our application to EASA is no small accomplishment,” said Armando Sassoli, co-general manager at MAG. “It was only made possible by the competence, focus and dedication of both Mecaer and Bell Helicopter teams who have been working on the program.”
