West Star Aviation Plans STC for Conquest II

 - October 22, 2013, 1:55 PM

West Star Aviation of East Alton, Ill. is expecting to obtain an FAA supplemental type certificate (STC) in the first quarter of 2014 for its RVSM solution for the Cessna Conquest II. The solution includes a dual-side Garmin G600 avionics display system and S-Tec 2100 digital autopilot.

West Star (Booth No. N4421) said the STC will specifically benefit Conquest operators with the Meggitt Magic EFIS who are looking for options to replace their current system. Operators using the Magic system already have the S-Tec 2100 autopilot installed. The S-Tec 2100 is also available as a retrofit for aircraft with Cessna ARC1000 or Sperry autopilots.

“It is becoming increasingly difficult to repair and replace parts for the Magic EFIS,” said Jerry Autrey, West Star avionics program manager. “The STC will be a great option for Conquest II operators to upgrade their system and take advantage of an RVSM solution.” Once the STC is complete, installation will be available at West Star’s East Alton or Grand Junction, Colo. locations.
