Meeker Aviation has received EASA approval for its Utility Step Mount for all models of the H145 including the D3 variant. This Utility Step Mount has already received FAA and Transport Canada certification.

“Our H145/BK117 Utility Step Mount provides operators with a robust design, dual payload capability, and exceptional camera stability,” said Cal Meeker, President of Meeker Aviation. “We are pleased to now be able to offer this product to our customers worldwide so that they can take advantage of the many benefits our side step mount provides.”

Meeker’s Utility Step Mount for the H145 aircraft offers unobstructed views and lower vibrations than other mounts on the market, making it a choice for surveillance missions, ENG and aerial film work. It is easy to install, bolting directly to the airframe, and it can be quickly removed from the aircraft as needed. The Utility Step Mount provides a 125 lb. (56.7 kg) payload capacity on the front hardpoints and is designed to accept a wide variety of camera and sensor equipment. It provides a 100 lb. (45.4 kg) payload capacity on aft hard points for microwave downlinks, FLIR cameras, loudspeakers, and searchlights.
