SPAES manufactures and certifies six stowage cabinets for installation
in Airbus H145 helicopter
SPAES has designed, manufactured and certified six (6) stowage cabinets for the stowage of pilot and crew baggage.
The stowage boxes were procured due to the lack of options for quickly stowing luggage and other equipment such as pilot helmets, headphones or the approach maps.
With a mechanical opening on the top side, the stowage cabinet has a volume of 60 liters and it is easily accessible with a quick opener. The material is made of fire-proof metal and allows safe storage for every mission. The rotatable mounting feet allows the installation in lateral and longitudinal direction along the seat rails. Optionally, additional luggage or the UVC – ultraviolet circulation air disinfection system – can be mounted on the top side. The system is available for Airbus H145 and H135 helicopters.
“The variable installation of the stowage cabinet enables the helicopter to be optimally adapted to the respective operating conditions. Due to the rotatable floor mounts of the existing quick-release fasteners, a flexible assembly can be quickly implemented in the respective positions”, says Nikolas Kares, Head of Production Organisation at SPAES GmbH & Co. KG.
For design and certification, a Minor Change was carried out in coordination with the customer in the Part 21J Design Organisation of SPAES. The six units were manufactured in-house. After completion of the stowage cabinets, they were delivered to the customer and fitted into the respective Airbus H145 helicopter on site.
