0

RUAG Aviation has gained an EASA STC enabling the Garmin GTN 750 touchscreen solution to be installed in Piaggio P180 Avanti cockpits.

“This new STC enables Piaggio P180 Avanti operators to benefit from improved safety through heightened situational awareness, as well as improved reliability and added aircraft value,” said Stephan Woodtli, general manager of RUAG Aviation’s site in Agno, Switzerland. “Optimized performance is achieved by the installation of a dual Garmin GTN 750 interface, a dual Garmin GTX 33D transponder, and state-of-the-art Garmin GWX 70 weather radar.”

The upgrade includes Localizer Performance with Vertical guidance (LPV) approaches, Precision-Area Navigation (P-RNAV), Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS), and Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) Out. “As a Piaggio Authorised Service Centre, as well as a Garmin dealer, the RUAG Aviation EASA-approved Design Organisation is in the position to design a package that builds on the strengths of both OEM systems,” said Woodtli.

The Agno facility can complete the installation in a downtime of four to six weeks, depending on the configuration selected.
