Advent Aircraft Systems continues to increase the aircraft count certified to accept its groundbreaking anti-skid braking technology. The FAA has granted an STC for the Advent eABS™ for all King Air 300 and 300LW aircraft. These aircraft variants join the King Air B300 and B200 variants that were STC’d in February 2016 and June 2017 respectively. The STC applies to Beechcraft King Air 300/300LW series aircraft equipped with Rockwell Collins Pro Line GPS 4000S or Garmin G1000/430W/530W avionics.
Beechcraft built 230 model 300/300LW variants. The 300LW, with its lower take-off gross weight, was purpose-built to comply with European regulations.
Advent said that creating a wide base of aircraft which can use its technology has been part of the plan from the outset, and this STC is just one more step in that process. As already received for the B200/B300, the company expects EASA, TCCA and other certifications for the 300/300LW to follow shortly.
Advent eABS sales to date have included installations on the King Air B200, B300 and B300C, including heavy weight, high flotation gear and CAT Soft Touch tire variants.
The Advent eABS may be ordered through all Textron Aviation company-owned service centers as well as select independent authorized King Air service facilities. In anticipation of the STC and winter weather, Advent has produced a limited number of eABS units that are available for immediate shipment to service centers.
All eABS components are approved for on-condition maintenance, with a minor inspection at 1,500 hours, and are listed in the MMEL for King Airs. System installed weight is 29 pounds.
