Rotorcraft Report: Sandel to Conduct HTAWS Trials
Vista, Calif.-based Sandel Avionics is preparing to carry out flight tests on its helicopter terrain awareness and warning system (HTAWS) at Corporate Helicopters in San Diego. The testing, set to begin on October 20, will check various functions of the system, which is based on Sandel’s ST3400 TAWS unit for fixed-wing aircraft. The helicopter TAWS system is designed to meet FAA technical standard order (TSO) C194, which governs HTAWS.
