Brazilian Certification Comes After FAA, EASA Approvals
Elliott Aviation announced Tuesday the Moline, IL-based business
aviation services company has received Supplemental Type
Certification (STC) for its RVSM solution on Beechcraft King Air
B200, 300 and B300 series aircraft from the Agéncia Nacional
de Aviaçao Civil (ANAC) of Brazil.
The company says its King Air RVSM solution is now certified on
three continents. Elliott Aviation previously received an STC from
the FAA for its RVSM solution, which includes all King Air B200,
300 and B300/350 series aircraft with existing Collins APS-65/H/J,
Honeywell/Sperry SPZ-4000 and Bendix/King KFC-400 autopilots, in
2006, and EASA certification in 2007.
"We view Brazilian certification of our RVSM solution as an
outstanding opportunity for us to introduce Elliott Aviation and
our complete range of avionics upgrades and other services to
aviators in South and Central America," said Mark Wilken, Elliott
Aviation director of avionics sales and product development.
"We look forward to helping business aircraft owners to fly
safer and to make the most of their aircraft investment."
Elliott Aviation has facilities in Moline, IL; Des Moines, IA;
Minneapolis, MN; and Omaha, NE.
