AML Expanded for AV-30-C EFIS Installations

The FAA has approved the expansion of the approved model list (AML) supplemental type certificate (STC) for installation of the uAvionix AV-30-C electronic flight instrument in more than 190 additional high-performance single-engine and light multiengine aircraft.

First STC’d in 2020, the AV-30-C can be installed as either a primary attitude indicator or directional gyro, but it also includes probeless angle of attack, baro corrected altitude, indicated/vertical/true airspeed, bus voltage, g load, and GPS navigational information. It fits in a standard 3-inch panel cutout.

Aircraft fitted with a uAvionix tailBeaconX ADS-B Out Mode S transponder can also use the AV-30-C as the control head for the transponder. The tailBeaconX, which includes a rear navigation light, ADS-B Out with Mode S, SBAS GPS, and antennas, replaces a typical tail-mounted position light. It also meets requirements for use of space-based ADS-B, which is being implemented in Canada.

“We are excited to make our highly successful AV-30-C available to a broader market segment,” said uAvionix COO Ryan Braun. “We have received a lot of requests from aircraft owners in the light-twin and high-performance singles market for solutions that preserve the unique look of their panel while offering the significant benefits that a digital EFIS can bring.”
