IS&S Cockpit Certified in PC-12
The retrofit flat-panel cockpit from Exton, Pa.-based Innovative Solutions & Support has gained its STC, clearing the way for hardware shipments to authorized installation shops. IS&S announced it has shipped the hardware to Western Aircraft in Boise, Idaho, and Epps Aviation in Atlanta, where the first customer installations have begun. PC-12 owners who choose to upgrade to IS&S’s Cockpit/IP system receive TCAS, TAWS, RVSM hardware and four 6- by 8-inch LCD flat-panel displays in a package targeted at less than $250,000 including installation, according to IS&S. Next up is certification flight testing for systems in a variety of Citations, Learjets and Hawkers, although the timing has yet to be decided, the company said.
