Advent Aircraft Systems has launched a world-wide “Get Ready for Winter” promotion of its advanced technology eABS™ anti-skid braking system for all King Air B200/B300 aircraft.
The promotion offers a $3,000 cash rebate directly to any operator who commits to the purchase of Advent’s eABS by October 31, 2017 and has the installation completed by the end of 2017. The rebate is paid by Advent upon completion of the installation. Advent has recently completed certification of eABS in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia and is offering the incentive now to ensure kits will be available for winter operations on the aircraft operator’s desired schedule.
The company says that eABS provides worry-free braking by eliminating risk of tire damage in all runway conditions; haptic technology that provides direct feedback to the pilot, optimizing brake control; active, independent control of each wheel that improves directional control on contaminated surfaces and in crosswind conditions; a useful alternative to reverse thrust, lessening risk of engine FOD and prop erosion on unimproved fields; and reduced stopping distances whether at idle or max reverse power settings.
List price before rebate for the King Air series is $55,890 plus the cost of installation labor charged by the Advent authorized dealer. Downtime is typically one-to-two weeks. A complete list of dealers in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia is available on the Dealer page on Advent’s website, and also includes independent Textron authorized service centers.
To date, 120 aircraft owners have installed eABS since its initial certification in 2013. All eABS components are approved for on-condition maintenance, with a minor inspection at 1500 hours, and are listed in the MMEL for the King Air. System installed weight is 29 pounds and is easy to install.
