IMP awarded STC for Beechcraft 1900D avionics modernization
IMP Electronic Systems has announced that it has recently been awarded a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) by the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) incorporating a Rockwell Collins Pro-Line 21 integrated avionics system adapted for the Hawker Beechcraft 1900D 19-passenger twin turboprop commuter category aircraft.
The aircraft modification kit, incorporating two Rockwell Collins primary flight displays and respective control panels, will be provided by IMP Electronic Systems. IMP can provide assistance on kit installation upon request. This integrated display system has already received Transport Canada Supplemental Type Certification.
The aircraft modification replaces the legacy flight instruments with a suite of Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 components and is fully compliant with ADS-B Out and the latest DO-260B standard. The new system will provide enhanced situational awareness, higher reliability and reduced operational costs.
"We are proud of this accomplishment in receiving the FAA certification for this avionic upgrade and are pleased to offer this modernization package to all operators of the Beechcraft 1900D aircraft," says Dave Meagher, IMP Electronic Systems' Vice President & General Manager. "This upgrade has generated significant interest with Canadian and International B1900D operators and we're excited to discuss the capabilities and benefits this installation can bring to B1900D operators."
"Updating legacy flight decks with Pro Line 21 integrated display system enables a number of key advantages, including enhanced situational awareness, improved reliability and reduced maintenance cost," said Lee Obst, Managing Director for Rockwell Collins in Canada. "This is a proven solution with more than 5,000 aircraft already flying worldwide with Pro Line 21."
