Teams Up With Aeromech
Raytheon says it has teamed with
Aeromech, Inc. to develop an RVSM solution for most of the
Beechcraft King Air fleet.
The FAA has recently approved STCs for King Air 200, 300, and
350 (B300) aircraft now equipped with an APS-65 or APS-80 autopilot
and ADC-80 air data computer configuration. Coupled with a previous
OEM solution for the more recent King Air fleet, installed with the
ADC-85 air data computer configuration, the majority of Rockwell
Collins-equipped King Air 200, 300, and 350s now have a
factory-sponsored solution available that will allow those
customers to continue operations above 28,000 feet after the Jan.
20, 2005 compliance deadline.
"We have aggressively priced these solutions well below current
market value of those packages not sponsored by Raytheon Aircraft
Company in an effort to keep our operators flying at the altitudes
and performance levels the King Air fleet was built while also
minimizing the impact of cost of operations." said Ed Dolanski,
Vice-President Customer Support.
Distribution of the RVSM kit solutions is exclusively offered
through Raytheon Aircraft Parts Inventory and Distribution (RAPID).
Special introductory pricing as been extended to Dec. 1, 2004,
allowing King Air owners to meet the January deadline.
Additionally, Raytheon Aircraft Company and D&D Aviation
Services have developed a service that will provide owners and
operators RVSM operational approval and aircraft-specific Minimum
Equipment List ("MEL") approval for aircraft manufactured by
Raytheon Aircraft Company.
"We have attacked this issue from every angle - parts, data,
installation, and certification in order to provide our customers a
complete and cost-effective solution," said Randy Groom, President
