The National Civil Aviation Administration of Argentina (ANAC) has approved Flightstar’s STCs for ADS-B Out and single wide area augmentation system (WAAS) flight management system (FMS) with localizer performance with vertical guidance (LPV) monitor for the Bombardier Learjet 40 series. These STCs were approved by the FAA in 2016.
Two different options for GPS pairing are available to operators with Flightstar’s ADS-B STC: a Honeywell KGS-200 standalone GPS that doesn’t require an upgrade to existing FMS systems or two Universal Avionics UNS-1Ew FMS units that serve as the GPS position source. Flightstar’s single WAAS FMS STC uses one Universal Avionics UNS-1Ew FMS unit and LPV monitor that offers full LPV capability, allowing operators to achieve ADS-B compliance without the need for a second FMS unit.
Based in Champaign, Illinois, at the University of Illinois-Willard Airport (KCMI), Flightstar operates an FBO and MRO from more than 112,000 sq ft of hangar space. It also offers avionics sales, installation, and repair, as well as charter and aircraft management.
