Maxcraft Avionics Receives FAA STC for Garmin Navigators
[Avionics Today 12-07-2015] Maxcraft Avionics has received FAA validation of its Transport Canada STC SH04-41 for installation of the Garmin GNS or GTN series navigators in the Sikorsky S76A/C series of rotorcraft. The applicability of this package has expanded to include GNS Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) and GTN Navigators as well as Honeywell EDZ-705/756 Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS), and SPZ-7000 or SPZ-7600 Dual Digital Automatic Flight Control System (DDAFCS) systems.
The GNS/GTN Navigators offer an integrated VHF-COM transceiver, VOR/ILS receiver, as well as GPS en-route, terminal and non-precision GPS approach capability. When coupled with a reliable integration to the aircraft, considerable panel and console space is recovered.
