Powell River, British Columbia, Canada – 06 January 2015 – Aero Design is ecstatic to announce the Canadian certification of The Aero Design MEGA Basket for the Bell 205 and 212.

The industry leading 400 pound load limit means the 46.5 Cubic Foot volume is equally matched, once again allowing operators to pursue new and exciting sources of revenue all in an incredible 118 pound installation. Other features including a flat bottom and lowered front lip for easy loading combined with the premier quick release system on the market allowing removal or install in 30 seconds or less and once again proving Aero Design is the benchmark for your external cargo carrying needs.
