Astronautics Corporation of America's AFI4700 RoadRunner Electronic Flight Instrument (EFI) has received FAA supplemental type certificate (STC) validation from the Indian Directorate General of Civil Aviation for A109E helicopters.
“The FAA STC validation from India is another significant step in Astronautics helping helicopter operators around the world to realise the cost, ease and safety benefits when retrofitting their aircraft with a RoadRunner EFI system,” said vice president of sales and business development Greg Plantz.
The EFI provides operators readability in all lighting conditions, enablement of modern navigation and approach capability, reduced operating and maintenance costs and minimal downtime for installation. The unit is easily upgradeable with new software functionality tailorable to customer needs and mission requirements.
The RoadRunner EFI has an FAA STC for Leonardo A109/119 helicopters and bilateral validation with EASA and Brazil's Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil.
