The STC covers various interfaces and allows the end user the flexibility to integrate a single panel installation or a more diverse multi panel/multi interface incorporating GPS/NAV/TIS inputs.
"This STC covers the full range of 350 models and provides the VFR and/or utility operator a means of having a low cost, highly reliable solution to existing electro mechanical instrumentation. Nothing on the market competes with this system in terms of retail cost or installation cost. We have four aircraft flying with this system in various configurations and feedback from both operators and pilots has been very positive." states John Carinha, director of operations for Aeronav Avionics.
