"A lot of planning and hard work went into obtaining this
STC,” said ASU Founder and CEO Mike Atwood announcing the STC
Tuesday. “This is our second fixed wing STC. Fixed wing
operators are seeing the necessity of flying with night vision
goggles on specific missions. We are thrilled that we can use our
expertise to further night vision and safety across the aviation
industry to include.”
ASU also has an STC on the C208 Caravan. In addition to the new
fixed wing STC, ASU has an industry leading 14 STCs on rotorcraft.
The company is currently working towards a STC on the Twin Otter
“We have worked with ASU for a number of years on numerous
projects,” said Bruce Currier from Evergreen Helicopters.
“They have proven their abilities. Their products and efforts
have become increasingly sophisticated. We worked closely together
to meet schedules and fulfill all the requirements for operational
use of the C212. ASU is an excellent company to work
Evergreen plans to modify at least two aircraft and possibly a
third with the new STC.
