Wichita, Kansas-based full service MRO and FBO Yingling Aviation has been appointed an authorised installation centre and dealer for Innovative Solutions & Support (IS&S) ThrustSense autothrottle systems.
ThrustSense is the first full regime autothrottle system approved for the King Air B200 and B300 models. It reduces a pilot's workload by computing power levels so the pilot can automatically control the engines. With functionality similar to FADEC, it protects against over airspeed or under airspeed stall, as well as over-torque and over-temperature.
The IS&S ThrustSense autothrottle has full standby capability. It's also equipped with LifeGuard, which offers VMCa protection in cases where one engine is inoperative.
Other benefits include improved comfort during flights thanks to smoother transitions between flight modes, no inadvertent power lever migration and improved situational awareness for pilots.
Customers can have their avionics upgrades completed at Yingling's facility at Wichita Dwight D Eisenhower National airport in Kansas.
“We're proud to be selected as an Innovative Solutions & Support autothrottle dealer. When a major product line chooses to partner with us, it speaks volumes about the reputation we've built for quality installations and upgrades,” says director of maintenance Jim Edwards.
