Kitchener Avionics president Barry Aylward is attending Heli-Expo 2014 to meet with operators and introduce them to his company’s Canadian-STC’d glass-cockpit retrofit for the EC120 helicopter, and he has news. “We’ve added the FAA STC to our retrofit,” said Aylward, “and we are eager to get started upgrading EC120s worldwide.”
Kitchener Aero Avionics has completed a new upgrade package for the Cessna 208 Caravan. The heart of the upgrade is an Aspen EFD-1000C3 PFD and Class B Taws. “For hardworking Caravans–especially those in commercial operations–this mod can really make a difference,” said Kitchener president Barry Aylward. The Aspen PFD replaces the problematic and expensive gyros in the Bendix/King KFC 150/225 flight control systems that were originally installed in the 208 fleet.
