Helicopters Get WAAS Avionics
Yeah! We achieved another aviation first today. We’re the first to receive the FAA’s AML-STC to install GPS/WAAS avionics on helicopters. Those who aren’t pilots may not realize the significance of this statement, but those that fly helicopters are rejoicing because they’ll now be able to operate in and out of areas that would otherwise be unavailable because of marginal weather. This AML-STC (approved model list supplemental type certificate) is for the GNS 400W/500W series and it covers approximately 50 of the most popular helicopters like the Bell 206, Enstrom 280FX, Agusta A109, Eurocopter EC135, MD Helicopters 600-N-Notar, Robinson R22 and R44, and many more. In addition, it includes certification for custom steep LPV approaches for up to six degrees, which means law enforcement and medical teams will be able to land their helicopters in areas with urban rooftops, such as hospitals.
