StandardAero completes Falcon 50 ADS-B certification
StandardAero has completed its first certified ADS-B solution for a Falcon 50 aircraft at the company’s Augusta, Georgia MRO facility. The system incorporates CMD Flight Solutions’ ADS-B DO260B upgrade and Supplemental Type Certificate (STC). As a result, this Falcon 50 aircraft is now in full compliance with the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) 2020 mandate for ADS-B capabilities.
“This Falcon 50 is one of only several aircraft in the nation with this specific system. The CMD Flight Solutions ADS-B installation provides operators with an affordable upgrade path,” said Jerry Sanders, Avionics Product Director for StandardAero Business Aviation. “We anticipate a growing interest from other Falcon 50 customers due to the overall success of this first installation.’
Benefits from this system will provide increased fuel efficiency through better aircraft routing along with increased safety and situational awareness for business aviation pilots.
