Shadin Avionics, based in St. Louis Park, Minn., received an order from independent regional carrier Cape Air to upgrade its entire fleet of Cessna 402s with Shadin's Digiflo fuel management systems.
Cape Air, based in Hyannis, Mass., operates a fleet of 64 Cessna 402s with up to 600 flights per day during high season. Cape Air previously modified eight Cessna 402s with Digiflo systems. Shadin says the systems reduce fuel usage by allowing the efficient use of the engines. The Digiflo system is part of a family of Fuel Management Systems Shadin offers which also includes the Miniflo, Microflo, Digidata and a number of flow transducers that support Shadin’s Engine Trend Monitor (ETM) and Air Data Computers (ADC) systems. Shadin’s Fuel Management Systems can be outfitted with NVG capability from Aero Dynamix and are supported by a strong portfolio of STC’s.
