Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics pulled the wraps off an amazingly gifted new standby system at this year's NBAA Convention with the introduction of their MD302 SAM (Standby Attitude Module).
Knowing a good thing when they see it, the folks at Ellliott Aviation were among the first adopters with an STC for installation that serves as part of its Garmin G1000 avionics upgrade in King Air aircraft. Elliott Aviation expects to receive FAA certification for the MD302 SAM installation by year end.
Elliott Aviation has completed a total of 75 G1000 retrofit installations in King Air C90A/B/GT, 200/B200 and 300/350 aircraft to date, and its Moline, Ill. (MLI) and Des Moines, Iowa (DSM) facilities rank first and second respectively, for G1000 installations in King Airs.
SAM is a compact device specifically designed to fit in less panel space than a standard set of 2-inch mechanical attitude, altitude and airspeed indicators. Its unique, two-screen display features selectable horizontal and vertical orientation. This allows for flexible cockpit installation without extensive rearrangement of equipment or the need for re-certification of relocated avionics. Weighing 1.6 pounds, SAM is lighter than just one of the three instruments it is designed to replace.
