AuRACLE Engine Management System Introduced At AirVenture

GippsAERO, Ultra Electronics Flightline Systems Integrate Instruments Into GA10 Project

GippsAERO has signed a multi-year agreement with Ultra Electronics Flightline Systems to integrate the AuRACLE digital engine management system to the GippsAERO family of aircraft.

The agreement provides for an initial joint design, development, integration and certification project over the next 12 months for the GA10 program. The GA10, a turbine engine powered 10 seat aircraft, is under development and builds on the success of the GA8 Airvan, and offers an alternative fuel solution for
operators where Avgas supply is problematic.

Besides providing basic EMS, the AuRACLE system will feature dual screen displays with full revisionary capabilities providing a high reliability solution for remote area operations. In addition, the AuRACLE will also provide a full ETM (Engine Trend Monitoring) capability. This will optimize engine maintenance
management and thereby increase operational reliability, engine life and profits for GA10 owners.

Gerhard Jordaan, Engineering and Projects Manager at GippsAERO said “the choice of the AuRACLE system provides GippsAERO with the capability to interface with a variety of customer avionics options. This will allow us to provide our customers versatility in our product”. Longer term goals of the relationship are to provide a common avionics baseline across the entire GippsAERO product range including GA18 and GA8. For fleet operators, this will minimise training costs.

Eric Hathaway, Senior Product Manager Aircraft Instruments at Flightline Systems stated “we see this as a strategic partnership to expand the AuRACLE product line into the turbine OEM market”. The GA10 aircraft is currently in development at the GippsAERO manufacturing facility in Morwell, Australia. The prototype of the GA10 is due to fly by end of year and the aircraft is still on track for certification through 2012 and production in early 2013.
