STC Approval - BendixKing CAS 67B TCAS II Change 7.1 FAA Approval

(Londonderry, NH) – Pro Star Aviation is proud to announce it has received approval for the upgrade of a BendixKing (Honeywell) CAS 67A TCAS II Change 7.0 system to CAS 67B TCAS II Change 7.1 under AML STC ST00347BO.

The AML STC covers many popular U.S. business aircraft from the following manufacturers: Boeing, Bombardier, Cessna, Dassault Falcon, Gulfstream, Hawker Beech, Learjet, Lockheed and Saberliner. The STC complies with the pending mandate requiring all aircraft operating in European airspace with a TCAS II system installed be equipped with Change 7.1 in accordance with MOPS change 7.1 no later than December 1, 2015.

The 7.1 upgrade is applicable to existing TCAS II 7.0 TPU0067A’s with part numbers; 066-01146-1111 & 066-01146-1211. It is completely software based, meaning there is no change to the form and fit of the existing system. The change corrects two safety issues inherent within the current TCAS II 7.0 system with regards to the Adjust Vertical Speed RA and the RA monitoring compliance during coordinated encounters. Aircraft without the 7.1 upgrade will not be allowed to fly into European airspace after December 1, 2015.

Pro Star’s AML STC is available for purchase directly to any BendixKing (Honeywell) Authorized Dealer or operator. There are three (3) options for upgrading the TPU0067A TCAS II Processor; an upgrade and return, an exchange of a serviceable unit, and an exchange of an unserviceable unit.
