A BN Islander aircraft operated by the Belgian coastguard has received a major enhancement with the installation of a Garmin G600 EFIS system.

The upgrade was made possible by the 50th STC obtained by the design offices at Gama Engineering, which worked on behalf of ASP Avionics in Belgium. "It has been a most rewarding and productive first year for the Gama Engineering team," says md Harry Lees.

"I am especially pleased that the growth of our Fairoaks activities has resulted in us employing three new engineering trainees and that our design office has completed a remarkable number of STCs, reaching the 50th milestone."

The company held a special fly-in event for existing and prospective customers at its Fairoaks base in September.
