Jet Aviation Basel has developed an EASA Supplemental Type Certification (STC) for the Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS II) version 7.1 upgrade.

The Basel facility now has an STC approval for TCAS II version 7.1 upgrade. All aircraft manufactured since March 2012 are equipped with TCAS II version 7.1. Any aircraft equipped with TCAS II version 7.0 software and operating within European Union airspace must upgrade to version 7.1 by December 2015.

Johannes Turzer, vice president and general manager at Jet Aviation Basel, said: “To ensure easy installation of this state-of-the-art software, we are offering the TCAS version 7.1 STC upgrade alone or in combination with a full service installation at Jet Aviation Basel or any other Jet Aviation facility.”

“Our dedicated off site service team can also install the upgrade in any hangar of the customer’s choice worldwide,” added Turzer.

Jet Aviation is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics and was founded in Switzerland in 1967.
