Aero Design Ltd. Announces Canadian Certification of the New Quick Release Bicycle Racks for the Airbus AS350 and AS355


Aero Design recently announced a new addition to the Aero Design Extreme Line. The Quick Release Bicycle Racks for the Airbus AS350/355 utilize the existing Aero Design quick release mounts for their line of cargo baskets. The system allows an operator to swap from basket to bike rack in less time than it takes to perform a weight and balance amendment. It also allows for three bikes per side, or the racks can be combined with Aero Design Cargo Baskets or Aero Design Quick Release Steps for the Airbus AS350/355.


The racks will accept the shortest frame bike with a 26-inch wheel, up to the current longest frame bike with a 29-inch wheel. All bikes can be up to 4 inches wide, with no rack modification needed. Additionally, bikes can be removed or installed in less than a minute each.


Jason Rekve, Aero Design president and Canadian air maintenance engineer (M1/M2) says, “We knew this was something that Western Canada helicopter operators wanted, but we had no idea how much attention this would get from helicopter companies, cyclists, and heli-tourism companies


around the world. At the time of certification, we had already spoken with 22 different parties throughout the globe interested in bike racks. We’ve been working hard to make connections so that we can all realize the mutual benefits of opportunities, both locally and abroad.”


Jordy Norris of Blackcomb Helicopters said, “Aero Design has been the most amazing company to work alongside during this exciting new endeavor. First they brought us intuitive new heli-ski baskets, and now this! This rack is going to be a huge game- changer in a sport with incredibly powerful growth right now. We were very excited to jump in early on this project, knowing that it would bring great things for mountain biking in ‘Sea to Sky Country’ and beyond. Together, we are opening up the industry to a whole new world of opportunity, with big smiles stretching from ear to ear along the way.”


Lorraine Blancher, Canadian professional rider, guide, and coach said, “I don’t think the bike industry yet comprehends how impactful this addition will be. Mountain bikers want adventure; they want to explore. We now have a tool that will provide us access to unique and diverse areas around the globe. Many can’t yet imagine, as we previously didn’t, all the access they will have to search out and see.”
