New Twin Otter Avionics Suit by MC2

Mid-Canada Mod Center (MC2) has had another busy and successful year of new Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) work. In this latest announcement, the company is please to advise that Transport Canada has published STC SA14-56 Issue 2 to the firm for its new dual Garmin G600 Electronic Flight Displays in a Twin Otter.

After removal of the dated and mostly original avionics, MC2 designed, specified and installed the following new equipment:

-        Dual Garmin G600,

-        Dual Garmin GTX330 Transponders with ADS-B out,

-        Single Garmin GTN 750 WAAS GPS/NAV/Comm with Class A TAWS,

-        Garmin GWX 68 Weather Radar, 

-        Garmin GTS 855 TCAS.

Existing systems that were incorporated into the new avionics suite were the DME, Radar Altimeter, and ADF. Avionics Design Services (ADS) provided all technical designs/master drawings for this project to MC2 in accordance with Transport Canada oversight.

This particular aircraft is certified for Commuter Operations under CAR 704, which allows the carriage of up to 19 passengers in this aircraft.
