Londonderry, NH (July 7, 2017) - Pro Star Aviation is proud to announce they have completed all installation requirements on their second King Air series aircraft in support of Advent Aircraft Systems' Approved Model List (AML) Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) SA03275CH - Installation of an antiskid braking system (eABSTM). The culmination of their efforts, has successfully added the King Air 200 Series to Advent's eABSTM AML STC under amendment 3 dated June 30, 2017.
Earlier this year, Pro Star completed the initial STC approval work for the King Air 300 series airframe, which, along with the Pilatus PC-12 series airframe, received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval January 11, 2017 and European Aviation Safety Administration (EASA) approval June 6, 2017. Transport Canada (TCCA) approval is currently pending for Canadian-registered aircraft, and is expected by the end of July 2017.
With the eABSTM installation taking two to three weeks to complete, Pro Star was able to take advantage of the down-time and coordinate the completion of a few desired interior modifications for the owner of the King Air 250. This additional work, resulted in a ‘first-ever’ working relationship between Pro Star Aviation and Executive Aircraft Interiors (EAI) based out of Oxford-Waterbury Airport (OXC) in Connecticut.
Of the interior modifications EAI completed, was; the removal of a forward facing cabin seat and a pyramid style wooden cabinet which made room for a two-seat divan (couch) to be added; the removal of the coffee maker and coffee cabinet allowing for expanded storage space to be added to the cabin; and the addition of extra cup holders and umbrella storage straps for passengers.
Pro Star Aviation is an FAA Part 145 Repair Station authorized to install Advent Aircraft System's eABSTM system on all King Air 200 & 300 series aircraft and Pilatus PC-12 series aircraft. Installation can be accomplished at company facilities based at the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT) in Londonderry, NH.
