RUAG gets STC for Garmin GTN 750
EASA has issued RUAG Aviation with a supplemental type certificate (STC) for the installation of the Garmin GTN 750 advanced touchscreen solution for Piaggio P180 Avanti cockpits.
“This new STC enables Piaggio P180 Avanti operators to benefit from improved safety through heightened situational awareness, as well as improved reliability and added aircraft value.”
Stephan Woodtli, general manager Site Agno, RUAG Aviation said: “This new STC enables Piaggio P180 Avanti operators to benefit from improved safety through heightened situational awareness, as well as improved reliability and added aircraft value. Optimised performance is achieved by the installation of a dual Garmin GTN 750 interface, a dual Garmin GTX 33D transponder, and state-of-the-art Garmin GWX 70 weather radar.”
“The P180 is renowned for its reliability. The STC solution further enhances these qualities. As a Piaggio Authorised Service Centre, as well as a Garmin dealer, the RUAG Aviation EASA-approved Design Organisation (DOA) is in the position to design a package which builds on the strengths of both OEM systems,” added Woodtli.
The scope of the upgrade made available by the RUAG Aviation STC solution includes Localiser Performance with Vertical guidance (LPV) approaches, Precision-Area Navigation (P-RNAV), Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS), as well as Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) Out.
