(Londonderry, NH) - Pro Star Aviation has received EASA validation of FAA STC ST00347BO, which approves the upgrade of BendixKing CAS 67A TCAS II 7.0 systems to CAS 67B TCAS II 7.1’s. The STC’s AML addresses over 40 aircraft models, to include the most popular in business and corporate aviation.
With the looming deadline of December 1, 2015 (IAW MOPS Change 7.1), Pro Star’s EASA STC 10054589 couldn’t have come at a better time for European registered aircraft. Operators failing to meet the requirements of MOPS Change 7.1 will not be authorized to fly within European airspace with a BendixKing CAS 67A TCAS II 7.0 system.
According to Pro Star’s ODA Administrator, Douglas England,
“ACAS II (TCAS II Change 7.1) introduces an important safety enhancement by improving the current Change 7.0 reversal logic, correcting issues with missed and late TCAS reversals and potential failures to initiate reversal Resolution Advisories.”
Since December 2014, STC ST00347BO (the FAA version) has been extremely popular for U.S. registered aircraft that operate within European Union airspace and for those who see the value in the improved safety enhancements that Change 7.1 offers. The, “EASA validation of Pro Star Aviation’s AML STC goes a long way to assure that European operators, currently equipped with an EASA-approved installation of a BendixKing CAS 67A ACAS II (TCAS II Change 7.0), have an efficient solution to satisfy the ACAS II Change 7.1 mandate,” says Mr. England.
Both EASA STC 10054589 and FAA STC ST00347BO are available for sale to BendixKing Dealers worldwide. For more information, contact Jeffery Shaw, Inside Sales Manager at 603-627-7827 x112.
