Avmax’s engineering division has created new ADS-B Out solutions for the Bombardier Dash 8-100/200/300 and CRJ100/200/700/900 families, and received Part 25 Supplemental Type Certificates (STC) for both aircraft types from Transport Canada Civil Aviation Administration (TCCA) and the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), with approval from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) still pending.
Bombardier has actually recommended the Avmax CRJ100/200 solution through its Operator Message (AOM) 919 & 1541, noting, “Avmax has a solid reputation in offering packaged STCs for many aircraft platforms.” AOM 919 & 1541 goes on to say, “Bombardier recommends that operators who wish to implement a simplified ADS-B solution, to contact Avmax for pricing and lead-time information.”
Many regulatory authorities have or will have an ADS-B Out requirement by the year 2020 and with this product, Avmax claims to offer a solution that will fit any budget. The STC is centred on the existing Rockwell Collins avionics architecture. For the ADS-B Out solution, Avmax can supply the engineering, parts and modification kit, and complete the installation.
Avmax’s engineering division is a Transport Canada-authorised Design Approval Organisation. Last year the company issued more TCCA Dash 8 STCs than all other Canadian Dash 8 STC holders combined.
