Maxcraft Avionics installs and certifies Garmin G500H Glass Panel

Phoenix Helicopters Eurocopter AS335N

Coinciding with Maxcraft’s STC development, certification, and install of the Garmin G500H system for the Eurocopter AS355 rotorcraft, our customer added an astounding paintjob to the very same aircraft.

Maxcraft did all the work for the STC out of a Fort McMurray airbase. The aircraft belongs to Pheonix Heliflight, a large heli operator based in Fort Mac.  Work included the above mentioned G500H (dual-screen electronic flight display), custom MaxPanel with MaxDuracoat finish,  GNS430 (cutting-edge WAAS navigation GPS/NAV/COM), GTS800 ( full TAS traffic surveillance capability), RA-4500 (Radar Altimeter), GTX transponder, and custom panel lighting.

Soon after installation of the G500H and other systems, Pheonix Heliflight’s twin-engine Eurocopter AS355N received a very custom paint job: Phoenix themed and with  pink flames it was done in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness. Every flight generates a donation courtesy of Pheonix’s owner, Paul Spring. Phoenix Heliflight’s modernized flagship-bird certainly takes to the skies in style.
