C&L earns STC for Saab 340 ADS-B In/Out
C&L expects customer orders to come in now that the dual Garmin transponders are FAA approved for its Saab 340 A&B ADS-B solution. EASA certification will follow shortly.

C&L Aviation Services has received STC approval from the FAA for its Saab 340 A&B ADS-B solution. The STC certifies the installation of dual Garmin GTX-3000 transponders and uses either the Garmin GDL-88 SBAS/WAAS GPS or Universal Avionics SBAS/WAAS FMS GPSs including the UNS-1Ew, UNS-1Espw, UNS-1Lw and UNS-1Fw FMS systems to comply with the FAA Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast Out (ADS-B Out) mandate that requires compliance before 1 January, 2020.

C&L completed the installation and the required FAA in-flight testing in early October, and many customers were eagerly awaiting this certification before placing their orders. EASA certification will follow shortly.

In addition, the Garmin Flight Stream 110/210 provides wireless ABS/B-In capability from the GDL-88 to provide subscription-free Flight Information Service-Broadcast (FIS-B) Weather and Traffic Information Service-Broadcast (TIS-B) traffic on compatible displays or PEDs. This STC can also be used for transponder/GPS pairing in other Part 23 and Part 25 aircraft.

“I'm very pleased with the speed at which we were able to complete this project,” says C&L Aviation Group CEO Chris Kilgour. “At C&L we have our own aircraft, MRO, avionics department and in-house engineering company that allowed us to be quick and efficient.”

This is the first STC approval C&L has generated using its in-house engineering company, C&L Engineering Services. The company is working on several other STC projects, including ADS-B solutions for other regional and corporate aircraft types.
