Amended STC Approval Adds Pilatus And Diamond Aircraft Plus The Addition Of  Avidyne’s Newest EX600 MFD As An Approved Display

The FAA has granted an amended STC to Avidyne for the MLX770 two-way worldwide Iridium datalink transceiver, which extends its approved model list (AML) to include Pilatus and Diamond aircraft. This amended STC also adds the EX600 multi-function display (MFD) as an approved display.

“We are continuing to expand the market for the MLX770 with additional aircraft approvals, and greater display compatibility,” said Avidyne Chief Operating Officer, Patrick Herguth. “Having access to worldwide weather products is vital for strategic planning and safety when flying anywhere in the world, and Avidyne is leading the way.”
