Onboard Systems announced that its updated attach point kit for the MD500 & 600 aircraft has been certified by the FAA and is available for purchase. Onboard has also submitted the attach point kit to Transport Canada and EASA for certification in Canada and Europe, respectively.

The updated attach point kit design includes many features that will improve durability and longevity of the product. The attach point now comes with built-in travel stops to help prevent both the hook and control cables from impacting the aircraft frame, and provides an additional .75-inch clearance for the electrical and manual release cables. In addition, bushings have been added at the hook pivot point and link, making it easier and less expensive to perform ongoing maintenance.
"Our customers are really going to like the new built-in travel limits for this kit," said Karsten Lemmon, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Onboard Systems. "The original attach point kit design called for attaching rubber pads to the aircraft belly to help protect against banging, so the new built-in travel limits greatly improve ease of installation and use. Plus, the new bushings at the hook pivot point and in the link will significantly decrease wear-and-tear."
