Alpine Aerotech Receives FAA STC for BELL 212 Avionics Upgrade

On , In News

Kelowna, BC (April 9th, 2021) — ALPINE AEROTECH announced today that they have officially received a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for a comprehensive avionic suite upgrade for Bell 212’s engaged in Day/Night VFR operations. The upgrade utilizes Pilot/Co-Pilot Garmin G500TXi Primary Flight Display’s (PFD) and a single GTN 750Xi GPS/NAV/COMM.

The kit removes several expensive to maintain analog flight instruments (HSI, ADI, VSI, Altimeter, and Tarsyn Gyro’s) by consolidating inputs into a highly accurate and reliable Altitude/Heading Reference System (ADAHRS) which is displayed on the large 10.6” touchscreens. The conveniently located GTN 750Xi provides centralized access to navigation, radio tuning, weather, terrain, traffic and much more. This information can be synchronized across both G500TXi displays with optional Traffic Advisory System (TAS), Helicopter Terrain Awareness and Warning System (HTAWS) and Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast (ADS-B) integration. To maintain Night VFR certification Aerotech equipped the kit with a Mid-Continent SAM for increased redundancy and safety.

“The first installation of this system was performed about a year ago” explains Jeff Denomme, President at Alpine Aerotech. “We have been in close contact with the operator and all reviews have been overwhelmingly positive – with commitment to modify the remainder of their fleet in the near future.”
