Elliott Aviation (Booth No. 1706) announced at NBAA’12 yesterday that it has received an STC for installation of Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics’s new MD302 Standby Attitude Module (SAM). The compact 1.6-pound unit provides attitude, altitude, airspeed and slip information. Elliott plans to offer the compact $10,600 unit to buyers of its Garmin G1000 upgrade for King Air turboprops. The installation should go smoothly as Elliott also announced at the show the completion of its 75th King Air G1000 installation.
“Elliott Aviation’s expertise in G1000 installations enables us to complete these upgrades in as little as 15 days, and at a value our competitors cannot match,” said Mark Wilken, Elliott Aviation director of avionics and product development.
Further enhancing its avionics aftermarket capabilities, the company recently created an aftermarket avionics sales department headed by Joe Stanley. “Now, instead of paying for an OEM exchange or being at the mercy of manufacturers’ repair schedules or high-dollar replacement costs, aircraft owners will have a viable and quick alternative solution for the top-quality equipment they desire, available at a substantial savings over the cost of repairs to their existing systems,” said Wilken.
