Ongoing STC Program Underway For Type Certifications
Trig Avionics, the ADS-B experts have announced another partner product compatible with their TT31 and TT22 transponders. The FAA recently approved a TT31 Trig transponder in conjunction with an Accord Technology NexNav Mini GPS unit. This follows a successful flight test program carried near Denver, CO, by Peregrine.
This new addition to Trig’s STC program allows operators to fit a Trig TT31 transponder for a 2020 ADS-B ‘mandate ready’ solution. “We design and manufacture transponders that are smart, affordable and future proof," said Andy Davis, CEO at Trig. "An investment in ADS-B technology is not cheap but we can offer certified equipment that’s simple to install and provides first class performance and value.”
The FAA requires individual installations in each aircraft type to be flight tested, these initial flight tests were conducted in a Mooney. Trig are running an ongoing STC program, demonstrating compatibility with third party avionics and encompassing further airplane types. “We already have an STC for Free Flight’s certified GPS equipment, adding the NexNav Mini GPS extends customer choice," Davis said. "Working with the FAA we expect to add various airplanes in the near future. This means customers will be able to base their certified ADS-B Out solution with our TT31 transponder, and our highly popular compact TT22 which is just going through the final stages of STC approval.”
Trig’s TT31 conventional mount transponder is an ideal ‘plug and play’ retro-fit for the popular KT76A . A Trig transponder is often the simplest upgrade path for most airplane types, with a Trig tray fitted it becomes the hub of 2020 ADS-B compliant system. Configured for ADS-B, the TT31 provides a certified 1090ES ADS-B Out. Having a certified ‘Out’ is necessary to receive TIS-B ground transmissions.
“We are delighted to partner with Trig Avionics," said Hal Adams of Accord Technology. "Their transponder technology is a great match for our certified WAAS/EGNOS - GPS equipment. This latest STC demonstrates how ADS-B technology is here today and can be fitted and operated with confidence.”
