Orlando-based StarPort received an FAA supplemental type certificate (STC) for installation of Honeywell’s Runway Awareness and Advisory System (RAAS) in a Hawker 850XP. The project took three months and 450 man-hours because StarPort engineers and technicians had to install a Honeywell EGPWS before adding the RAAS, according to avionics manager John Coon. The StarPort STC is applicable to 800XPs with Honeywell’s NZ2000 FMS and global navigation satellite system.
