Maxcraft gets FAA STC for Garmin GNS on Sikorsky S76 A/C

December 2, 2015  By Maxcraft Avionics

Maxcraft Avionics has announced that they have received FAA Validation of their Transport Canada STC SH04-41 (FAA STC SR03573NY) for installation of the Garmin GNS or GTN Series Navigators in the Sikorsky S76A/C series of rotorcraft.

The applicability of this package has now expanded to include GNS WAAS and GTN Navigators as well as all flavours of Honeywell EDZ-705/756 EFIS, and SPZ-7000 or SPZ-7600 DDAFCS Systems.

The GNS()/GTN Navigators are ideally suited for the Sikorsky S76A & C rotorcraft, offering a integrated VHF-COM transceiver , VOR/ILS receiver, as well as GPS En-route, Terminal and non- precision GPS Approach capability. When coupled with a reliable integration to the aircraft, considerable panel and console space is recovered.

To date, seven different integration configurations have been developed:

  1. GPS500() in S76() w/ EDZ‐756, SPZ‐7600 & Honeywell Avionics
  2. GPS500()/GNS530() w/ EDZ‐756, SPZ‐7600 & Collins Avionics
  3. GPS500()/GNS530() w/ EDZ‐705 (SG‐705), SPZ‐7600 & Collins Avionics
  4. GNS530() w/ EDZ‐756, SPZ‐7600 & Honeywell Avionics & Wulfsberg DME
  5. Dual GPS500W w/ EDZ‐756, SPZ‐7600 & Honeywell SR‐850 Primus Radio System
  6. GTN750 w/ EDZ‐705 (SG‐700), SPZ‐7000 & Collins Avionics
  7. GTN725/750 w/ EDZ‐756, SPZ‐7600 & Collins Avionics
