C&L Aviation Services (C&L), a C&L Aviation Group company, has received EASA approval for its Saab 340 A&B ADS-B solution. The STC certifies the installation of dual Garmin GTX-3000 transponders and uses either the Garmin GDL-88 SBAS/WAAS GPS or Universal Avionics SBAS/WAAS FMS GPS’s including the UNS-1Ew, UNS-1Espw, UNS-1Lw, and UNS-1Fw FMS systems to comply with the FAA Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast-Out (ADS/B-Out) mandate requiring compliance before January 1, 2020, and the EASA requirement date of June 7, 2020.

C&L already received FAA approval for use of the STC and has since sold over 20 kits to customers looking for an ADS-B solution.

“With the deadline looming, I’m glad to see EASA certification come through swiftly for this solution,” said Chris Kilgour, CEO of C&L Aviation Group. “The solution has been ideal for many already and we look forward to being able to now offer it to our European customers.”

This is the first STC approval C&L has generated using their in-house engineering company, C&L Engineering Services. The company is working on several other STC projects, including ADS-B solutions for other regional and corporate aircraft types.
