Texas-based avionics integrations, modifications, and remote installation provider L2 Aviation will partner with GE Aviation to provide remote installation services for its subsidiary Avionica’s miniQAR Mk III quick access recorder (QAR). Under the terms of the agreement, L2’s technicians will travel to an aircraft’s location and install all hardware and wiring and perform functional testing, returning the aircraft to service under its FAA Part 145 certificate.
L2 originally participated in the certification of the miniQAR last year, with an AML STC for Part 23 under a commercial agreement with Avionica. That STC includes the HondaJet; Eclipse 500; Cirrus Vision Jet; Daher TBM; Pilatus PC-12; Cessna Citation Mustang and CJ family; Embraer Phenom 100 and 300; and Beechcraft King Airs.
L2 has already performed several installations of the miniQAR as well as of Avionica’s avCM-4G cellular module, which provides greater data acquisition and instant ground-based cellular transmission to maintenance and FOQA providers.
“We’ve appreciated L2’s strong support in the installation of the miniQAR MkIII/avCM combination for operators needing to transmit flight data while on the ground and connected to a local cellular network from anywhere in the world,” said Avionica v-p of business development Sean Reilly. “I see this relationship continuing to grow and get stronger now as part of GE Aviation.”
Flexjet recently announced that it will equip its entire fleet with the QARs.
