Montreal, Canada – July 17TH, 2023 - DART Aerospace is excited to announce the launch of a new external cargo Heli-Utility-Basket™ specifically tailored for the Bell 505 aircraft. The Bell 505 Heli-Utility-Basket™ is the latest in DART’s proven line of baskets. It joins DART's existing Heli-Utility-Baskets™ for helicopter models such as the H125, Bell 407, R66, and AW119, as well as other models for helicopters manufactured by Airbus, Bell, Leonardo, and Robinson.

“DART is excited to further support the popular Bell 505 by launching a Heli-Utility-Basket™ that allows operators to expand their mission profile,” said Michaël Desjardins-Séguin, DART Business Unit Manager for Parts and Accessories. “DART is well positioned to bring this first Bell 505 basket to market with our proven record of efficient design, development, and certification capabilities.”

The Bell 505 Heli-Utility-Basket™ features quick and easy installation, allowing operators to externally carry skis, cargo hooks, tools and equipment, and a variety of other items safely. Developed for the utility and VIP market, The DART Heli-Utility-Basket™ is constructed of corrosion-resistant stainless steel, coated with a high-gloss, scratch-resistant white finish. Safety is enhanced with a simple self-locking handle that assures lid closure and secures cargo during flight. A gas spring is utilized to ease lid opening and closing.

DART is proud to be collaborating with local service center G2 Aviation in the testing process for this new product. The basket will be certified under TCCA and FAA STC. As with most DART products, DART will support other agency validations based on customer needs.
