FAA Grants STC for King Air C90A ADS-B Out Solution
FAA granted a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) to the University of North Dakota for the 1090 MHz Extended Squitter ADS-B Out solution for the Hawker Beechcraft C90A business jet.
The STC also applies to the FreeFlight Systems model 1201 WAAS GPS sensor as the position source installed with the 1090 MHz ADS-B Out solution.
The 1201 GPS/WAAS Sensor is TSO-certified and meets all international ADS-B accuracy requirements, the company said.
“We worked closely with UND’s highly regarded avionics department to develop this important ADS-B solution for King Air C90 owners worldwide. The timeliness of this STC also helps C90A owners get ahead of the expected capacity crunch at avionics shops and keep flying,” said Tim Taylor, CEO of FreeFlight Systems.
