Aspen Avionics Announces Canadian STC For R44 Series Helicopters

Western Avionics Completes Transport Canada Installation Approval

Transport Canada has approved the installation of Aspen’s H-series Primary Flight Displays (PFDs) and Multi-function Flight Displays (MFDs) into the Robinson R44 and R44 II model helicopters, according to an announcement from Aspen Avionics and avionics service company Western Avionics.

Aspen’s H-series PFD and MFD systems are designed and manufactured to meet the rigors of helicopter operations. The PFD is a lightweight, compact, all solid-state digital replacement for legacy mechanical flight instruments. The MFD adds features like high resolution moving maps, relative terrain and obstacle awareness, and traffic displays.
 
“The safety-enhancing benefits of glass panel technology have yet to be fully realized in the helicopter market,” says Anson Gray, Aspen’s Helicopter Program Manager. He continues, “The Robinson platform will easily showcase Aspen’s reliable and versatile avionics solution.”
 
“This STC effort will bring a whole new level of safety and system reliability to the Robinson fleet,” Mark O’Hearn, Western’s Manager of Business Development and Sales. “The Robinson fills many roles and its missions will be that much easier and safer with Aspen’s solid-state digital flight display system. The compact package also fits neatly into the limited panel space.”
 
Western Avionics has also submitted for FAA and EASA validation of the STC to make it available to US and European operators. Approval for the R22 model is also underway.
