ThrustSense Gains Supplemental Type Certification In Europe, Canada

Innovative Solutions and Support Shares Their Enthusiasm

Innovative Solutions & Support has received the European Union Aviation Safety Agency and Transport Canada Civil Aviation Supplemental Type Certification for its ThrustSense Full Regime Autothrottle for King Air.

Over forty countries outside of the US have approved of IS&S’s auto-throttle technology, joining Australia, Argentina, Brazil, China, Mexico, Philippines, South Africa and Taiwan. Special mission, extended range, heavy-weight and Blackhawk aircraft are the categories for the newly customized ThrustSense King Airs. 

“We’re feeling a wave of greater acceptance in ThrustSense safety and performance by business aviation owners and operators on all seven continents,” IS&S said. “With the prospect of general aviation movements increasing significantly with pandemic recovery, we’re seeing there’s a greater focused attention by aircraft operators on further enhancing the King Air’s utility and value by reducing workload in their flight operations. ThrustSense is a great example of IS&S’s capabilities as a key player in providing needed technology to deliver cockpit automation to this next level.”

Additionally, the IS&S ThrustSense Autothrottle with LifeGuard Protection is a full regime system from take-off roll to landing phases of flight including go-around.  

ThrustSense’s FADEC-like engine protection prevents both engine and airspeed exceedances that can and have become safety challenges during situations of high pilot workload. ThrustSense provides critical protection against Vmca, via the first ever system that proportionally reduces engine power to maintain directional control, thus mitigating the most dangerous ‘low-and-slow’ challenge associated with twin-engine operations. The equipment is standard on King Air 260 and 360s, and can be retrofitted at King Air Service centers around the world.
