Sandia Aerospace, located in Albuquerque,New Mexico, was founded in 1997 by a group of avionics professionals to provide high quality avionics products to the helicopter, general aviation, corporate and regional airline markets.
Sandia manufactures airdata computers, transponders, altitude encoders and products that fit behind the panels for integration ease. Here at MAXCRAFT, we utilized the Sandia SAC 7-35 in our Beech 1900 STC (TCCA 12-78) for TAWS with altitude enhancement. The Sandia SAC 7-35 Airdata Computer enables you to put air data information on the Garmin GNS and GTN series navigators.
The Sandia STX165 Transponder incorporates their world class SAE 5-35 encoder design. Sandia combined the two together in the smallest panel mount unit available. This unit can be used in the upcoming UAT ADS-B mandate. Sandia has and still manufactures for other brand-name avionics manufacturers.
They were particularly honored to be this year’s recipient of the Aircraft Electronic Association Associate Member of the year award. Winning this award was proof positive of their dedication to customer service.
