Phoenix Rising Aviation, an 18-month-old maintenance firm at Drake Field in Fayetteville, Ark., expects this month to receive its first RVSM STC for a Falcon 20, with group approval planned by year-end. The RVSM program is being developed primarily for Falcon 20s equipped with the original Collins AP-105 or Sperry SPC-500 autopilots. Cost is “under $200,000,” including height-monitoring tests. Earlier, Thunder Avionics in St. Louis disclosed it was developing RVSM solutions for the Falcon 10 and 20 (AIN, June, page 8).
