Rotor Accessories Releases Headset Controller Cradle for Bose and Lightspeed Headsets

Posted by jhadmin

Los Angeles, California — Rotor Accessories, the makers of the innovative Blade Sock, have created another practical solution to a common helicopter pilot problem. With the creation of the Headset Controller Cradle, pilots can now neatly manage their headset controller by sliding it into the cradle and hanging the whole unit on the R22/R44/R66 headset hook. This takes the weight of the unit and anchors it to the hook on the helicopter, keeping it out of the way of the pilot while reducing stress on the intercom connection.

Posted by jhadmin

Leonardo has announced the maiden flight of its new Falco Xplorer drone aircraft. Falco Xplorer S/N0001 took off from Trapani Air Force base on January 15, cruised over the Gulf of Trapani in a dedicated fly zone, for around 60 minutes and then returned to base, landing safely.
