Aero Design acquires Bearpaw line from Helitowcart

Feb 28th, 2018

In 2018, Aero Design became the proud holder of the Helitowcart line of Bearpaws under Transport Canada supplemental type certificate (STC) SH06-24 and Federal Aviation Administration STC SR02432NY for the Airbus AS350/AS355, Airbus EC130 and Robinson R44/R66.

This outstanding product already offers tremendous attention to detail that features streamlined pad shape and no lip edge allowing moisture and debris to easily flow off.

The revolutionary iceblade feature provides dramatically improved traction on clear ice offering safety and comfort during start up and shut down combined with the reinforced rear section for increased longevity over the life of the product.

Our goal at Aero Design is to achieve additional certifications for the existing models and expand on the line at the industry’s direction. As always, the relationship between Aero Design and Helitowcart will continue to grow and flourish through an expanded distribution agreement allowing Helitowcart to preserve support for their existing clientele.

Aero Design president Jason Rekve stated: “The Helitowcart Bearpaws are well known for their quality and design.” He added, “Bearpaws are an obvious fit with our existing cargo baskets and bike racks so it was an easy choice when the option to purchase the line arose.”

Helitowcart’s VP of operational support, Maxime Perron Caissy, also said: “The transaction was a logical step in the company’s evolution as it will allow Helitowcart to focus more on the growing market for helicopter moving solutions.”
