STC Approval Allows For Immediate Retrofit Installations
Avidyne has added another feather in
their cap with the receipt of an STC approval for their new Entegra
Release 9 Integrated Flight Deck (IFD) system for retrofit into
Cirrus SR20 and SR22 aircraft.
This STC certification comes just days after Avidyne received
Technical Standard Order Approval (TSO) approval for the Entegra
Release 9 suite, and Avidyne has already announced plans to pursue
additional STCs for the Piper PA-46 line.
"This STC marks a significant milestone in the Entegra Release 9
development program," said Patrick Herguth, Avidyne's Chief
"Our production line is already up to speed and we are shipping
product for installations that are scheduled to begin next week.
Release 9 is designed to dramatically enhance safety and increase
the utility of these aircraft for IFR operations, and we look
forward to delighting our customers with this innovative new
"Now that we have received this STC, we are all set to deliver
on our vision for a next-generation flight deck system that is much
simpler and easier to use than anything else available in
aviation," said Avidyne president Dan Schwinn.
