Kitchener, Ontario-based Kitchener Aero Avionics received Canadian STC approval for an Aspen and Garmin avionics upgrade package for the Cessna 208 Caravan. The upgrade features an Aspen EFD-1000C3 PFD, which replaces the “problematic and expensive gyros in the King KFC 150/225 flight control systems,” and Garmin GNS 530W Class B Taws. The Taws system is compliant with the “enhanced altitude accuracy” provisions of Transport Canada’s Taws mandate.
