Enhanced Altitude Accuracy For Hawker Beechcraft 1900C And 1900D Regional Airliners
Transport Canada has issued an STC to Maxcraft Avionics in Vancouver, B.C., (SA12-78) for the installation of a Class A Terrain Awareness Warning System (TAWS) into the Hawker Beechcraft 1900C and 1900D aircraft. The Maxcraft solution also meets the new Transport Canada requirements for Enhanced Altitude Accuracy (EAA) as referenced in the Transport Canada Advisory Circular for (TAWS) AC 600-003.
This approved solution offers the Sandel ST3400 TAWS Class A display, integrated with existing compatible GPS receivers such as the Garmin GNS400()/500() and GTN6XX/7XX Series Navigators, or can provide a new dedicated WAAS/GPS Sensor, if required. Existing dedicated and compatible Air Data Sensors from existing GPWS systems may be retained when viable, or replaced with a dedicated Sandia Aerospace SAC 7-35.
This STC offers two approved configurations: 1) RMI replacement 2) TCAS control display replacement. "This is an ideal cost effective solution for Canadian 1900C/D operators which not only meets current regulatory requirements, but also eliminates the risk/expense of future compliance costs for enhanced altitude accuracy by 2017," said Maxcraft president, Daryl MacIntosh.
Founded as an avionics company specializing in helicopters, Maxcraft Avionics now offers support for all types of aircraft including private, commercial, business, charter, corporate, airline, police, military and air ambulance.
