Vancouver, BC, November, 2015 – Maxcraft Avionics Ltd announced today that they have received  FAA Validation of their Transport Canada STC SH04-41 (FAA STC SR03573NY) for installation of the Garmin GNS or GTN Series Navigators in the Sikorsky S76A/C series of rotorcraft. The applicability of this package has now expanded to include GNS WAAS and GTN Navigators as well as all flavours of Honeywell EDZ-705/756 EFIS, and SPZ-7000 or SPZ-7600 DDAFCS Systems.

The GNS()/GTN Navigators are ideally suited for the Sikorsky S76A & C rotorcraft, offering a integrated VHF‐COM transceiver , VOR/ILS receiver, as well as GPS En‐route, Terminal and non‐ precision GPS Approach capability.
