Advent Aircraft Systems has received FAA approval of a revision to the Aircraft Flight Manual (AFM) for King Air B300/B300C aircraft equipped with the Advent eABS™.
The revision offers up to seven percent reduction in Take-Off Field Length (TOFL) at higher, hotter and/or heavier conditions due to improvements in accelerate-stop performance. This reduction can equate to use of shorter runways for departure or departing with additional fuel or payload from currently used runways. The STC also offers a modest reduction in landing distance (up to four percent) again at higher, hotter and /or heavier conditions.
The AFM Supplement will be an option for new or current operators of B300/B300Cs equipped with eABS. It may be ordered from Textron Aviation service centers, Advent-authorized dealers or Advent Aircraft Systems. The price for the supplement is $2,500; order Advent Aircraft Systems document T103106A.
Advent recently added to its worldwide dealer network with Sundt Air AS of Gardemon, Norway, Turbo Air, Inc. of Boise, Idaho, and Yingling Aviation, Inc. of Wichita, Kansas. The company currently has 37 service centers spanning North America, Europe and Australia.
