Falcon 900s ready to receive Mid-Continent SAM module
The MD302 offers flexible cockpit installation and an easy-to-install adapter plate allows the standby attitude module to fit all existing Falcon 900 configurations. The one-knob SAM is technical standard order certified.

Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics has announced that the company's SAM MD302 standby attitude module is now STC approved on Falcon 900 A/B/C/EX series aircraft for FAA, EASA and AFAC (Mexico) registered aircraft.

The two-inch, solid-state instrument displays attitude, altitude, airspeed, slip, vertical trend and heading information to the pilot during normal or standby operation in the event of primary instrument failure. SAM replaces the attitude horizon standby, altimeter and standby Mach airspeed Indicator on board the Falcon Jet.

“We are proud to offer our Falcon 900 operators SAM, an off-the-shelf, certified solution, as part of our continuous efforts to modernise the cockpit, while improving safety and reliability,” says Olivier Langeard, director of aftermarket programmes and business development at Dassault Falcon Jet.

The MD302 offers flexible cockpit installation and an easy-to-install adapter plate allows the standby attitude module to fit all existing Falcon 900 configurations. SAM is technical standard order certified and features a simple, one-knob interface that provides user-friendly menu control to the pilot.

“To date, SAM is STC approved on more than 500 aircraft models. It's an ideal replacement for ageing standby units and requires minimal modification,” adds David Copeland, VP of sales for Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics. “SAM fits in less panel space than the instruments it is designed to replace, and its high-definition display provides a seamless transition from the primary flight displays to the standby in the cockpit.”
