AKV - new BK117 Twin Engine Cycle Counter Approval

AKV : 31 October, 2007  (New Product)
AKV has received FAA STC and PMA approval for the new BK117 Twin Engine Cycle Counter. The new BK117 Cycle Counter allows operators to fully conform with the engine manufacturer requirement for Gas Producer (Ng) and Free Turbine (Np) cycle counting.
This system is designed as an alternate cycle counting device for the very popular Arriel 1E2 powered EC145. The installation location allows for easy viewing by the pilot and is designed to replace OEM gauges in the overhead console. Real time Ng and Np speeds are displayed along with accumulated cycles on two independent and redundant computers utilizing the less conservative and far more accurate 'recommended procedure' all the while continuously monitoring and accumulating partial cycles associated with engine speed changes. Flight and separate revenue timers are also included to replace the standard hour meters.

Beginning of 2008 will allow additional installation approvals in LTS101 powered BK117's giving the complete fleet of existing BK117's, past and present the ability to easily conform to current cycle counting procedures from both engine manufacturers.
