Aerochine reminds Bell 505 customers:
Bell issued technical bulletin TB 505-18-10 on November 19, 2018, informing some Bell 505 helicopters could retrofit cabin doors and receive replacement parts for free. The change offers a door opening mechanism that can be opened from the inside when locked.
Details as follows:
HELICOPTERS AFFECTED: Serial numbers 65011 through 65038, 65040 through 65046, 65048 and 65049. [Serial number 65039, 65096, 65099 and subsequent will have the intent of this bulletin accomplished prior to delivery.]
WARRANTY: Owners / Operators of Bell Helicopters who comply with the instructions in this Bulletin will be eligible to receive non-prorated replacement parts as applicable, listed in the bulletin. Bell Helicopter has recently introduced enhancements to the VISTA Portal which allocates specific warranty entitlement for an aircraft by serial number.
The Product Service Letter (PSL) number which will be listed below the bulletin number on the introduction page is going to be a required field when submitting a claim for replacement parts, labor, and/or freight. If you receive an ASB or TB that does not have a PSL number, then there is no warranty entitlement for that bulletin.
NOTE: Customers who fail to comply with the instructions in this Bulletin before October, 16th, 2019 will not be eligible for the special warranty listed above.
