The expanded instrument panel replaces the standard option and has additional panel area for a wider range of equipment locations.

The new L-3 Wescam Mx-10 quick mount installation kit enables quick and easy installation of an L-3 Wescam MX-10 camera.

The camera can be belly-mounted aft of the lower wire strike cutter. Controlled by a cockpit mounted hand control, the kit also includes a laser interlock.

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