Twin Commander service center Eagle Creek Aviation Services was issued an STC for a Garmin G950 upgrade on Twin Commander turboprops. The STC replaces the existing avionics and instruments with a 12.4-inch MFD and two 10.4-inch PFDs, subtracting approximately 150 pounds from the airplane’s empty weight. The S-Tec 2100 digital autopilot has been a popular upgrade in the Twin Commander series and that system couples with the G950, or the autopilot can be installed during the upgrade. Engine instrumentation is displayed on the MFD. The upgrade also includes Eagle Creek’s new crew alerting system, replacing the existing annunciator panel, as well as RVSM certification and approval. Options include Garmin Tcas, GWX 70 radar, ChartView and synthetic vision.
