Bell 206 Dash mounted anything

Recommended Posts

For mounting anything as a Minor mod to the top of the dash on the 206 under Cars 571 appendix A, what do you do for the question that asks "does it affect the flight-crew's visibility or their ability to control the aircraft?"

Some TC inspectors argue that anything mounted there affects visibility. I've seen pictures of some monster ipad/gps installs. So has anyone ever discussed this with TC?

Seems subjective and up to the person installing to decide.

Thanks

We had to remove all the unapproved ball mounts at one  point but there are other legally mounted stc's that use the space.

Just velcro it up there i guess?

I'm a big believer in getting approvals for in dash and other fixed items you need.  However, that can be cost prohibitive.

As far as restricting vision, yes, a very small portion.  It doesnt mean that they wont allow it but you'd be better off to query your local inspector.

There is no restrictions on a pilot being 5 feet tall, you still can't see over the instrument consul on a 206B. Should you happen to get a remark or whatever from an inspector, tell him to put it in writing and justify it.
