“Getting this STC done has created the roadmap for us to continue on,” said Pelton, noting that other STCs may involve fuel systems, autopilots and more." General Aviation News
We have made great strides in replacing legacy fuel quantity indication in GA aircraft and Jack Pelton's comment above, indicates the importance of improved fuel quantity indication in the roadmap to improving the equipment on legacy GA Aircraft.
Today's EAA STC news announcement opens up the literal Pandora's box of opportunity.
Actually our FAA TSO approval allows us to move even faster into getting universal approval for installing better fuel quantity systems in GA aircraft.
The TSO approval insures that we have met both the new ASTM standard for Verification of Avionic Systems but also the RTCA DO-254 Design Assurance Guidance for Airborne Hardware as well as the DO-160 standard for surviving the external environmental conditions found on the wing of the aircraft
This is a major step forward and was not anticipated after the Part 23 Rewrite NPRM.
The new ASTM Standard makes it much easier to show compliance with organization, definition & verification of our software.
Utilizing a smart sensor was key to CiES obtaining the outstanding aviation fuel level sensing results.
This quality indication is one that thousands of pilots rely on, flying brand new Cirrus, Vulcanair, & Quest aircraft.
Contact CiES as we are adding fuel quantity sensor configurations for thousands of single engine and twin aircraft.
