USB charger is approved for Falcon 50
Mid-Continent's MD93 combined digital clock and USB charger can now be installed on Falcon 50 aircraft following STC approval granted to West Star Aviation.

West Star Aviation has received an FAA STC for the installation of the Mid-Continent MD93 series digital clock/USB charger in Falcon 50 aircraft. The two-in-one solution saves panel space by combining a multi-function digital clock with dual USB charging ports.

“The MD93 delivers accurate time-keeping functions as well as USB charging ports for both standard and high power devices that are common today," says Marty Rhine, vice president of sales, West Star Aviation. "While seemingly simple, these units are functional, reliable and provide true value and utility to the operator. So much so, we anticipate moving into DER approvals for other aircraft soon."

The unit is a compact two-inch size that fits standard panel cutout and provides both 12 and 24-hour formats of local time, universal time, flight timer, countdown and stopwatch functions on the clock. Each USB port provides 2.1 amps for charging and powering use.
