A Beechcraft King Air 350 aircraft operator, flying business aviation missions, needed to increase the aircraft’s range, and productivity, while maintaining safety.
Why the Operator Selected MC2
Mid-Canada Mod Center’s (MC2) team of experts has skills and knowledge to perform the significant modifications required to meet the operator’s requirements. MC2 developed the concepts, designed, specked-out, installed and certified the system, on-time and on-budget.
This operator can now comfortably work in Northern Domestic Airspace, and important requirement for this King Air 350.
About the Mods
While MC2 completed many mods on this business aircraft, the key upgrades included:
- The Universal Avionics EFI-890R Advanced Flight Display (AFD), installed to replace an existing Collins EFIS-85. This proven AFD offers flexibility as a stand-alone Primary Flight Display (PFD) or Multi-Function Display (MFD), and as a fully integrated PFD/Navigation Display (ND) cockpit system. The Universal EFI-890R high-resolution, high-contrast AFD provides superior readability through the full range of ambient lighting conditions from bright sunlight to dim nighttime environments, with extremely wide viewing angles. The EFI-890R ADF replaces ADI, HSI, Radar Indicator, Altimeter, VSI, RMI and Airspeed Indicators with PFD and ND large multi-format displays. The original engine gauges were all retained and incorporated into the new avionics package.
- Dual UNS-1Lw SBAS LPV FMS: Among its many benefits, this product allows FMS Flight Planning, Fuel Management, Data Management, Navigation, Messages and more.
- Two Collins AHC-3000A AHRS and AH-2100 Super AHRS (for flight into areas of mag unreliability).
- Ancillary hardware and adapters. All adapters, cabling and hardware were also included in this MC2 modernization.
The resulting upgrades and modernization provide the operator with new, large format, integrated smart displays for better viewing angle, better flight management, modern messaging capabilities, all while maintaining safety standards.
