International Water-Guard (IWG) has announced a supplemental type certificate from Brazil’s ANAC aviation authority for installation of its IWG-A4 potable water treatment unit on the Embraer Legacy 600 and Legacy 650. “Achieving certification of the IWG on Embraer aircraft is an important milestone for both IWG and Embraer,” said IWG president Bruce McCoubrey.
The IWG-A4 approval opens the market for the Canadian water treatment specialist to offer its unit on the growing Legacy fleet in Brazil. Plans to obtain FAA and EASA approvals would further open the Legacy market for aircraft registered in Europe and the U.S. The installation for ANAC approval was designed by IWG and its Brazilian partner, Avionics Services of São Paulo.
