FreeFlight Gets ADS-B AML STC for Part 27 Rotorcraft

By Staff Writer | March 9, 2016

FreeFlight Systems has obtained an ADS­-B AML STC for Part 27 rotorcraft, the company said in a press release. FreeFlight's RANGR series offers a range of fully­ featured, TSO certified ADS­-B solutions. The company selected Peregrine to perform engineering services.
The FreeFlight Systems RANGR ADS­-B product line was designed to accommodate helicopter operations. FreeFlight Systems was the first company to receive a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for a rule­-compliant 978 MHz ADS­-B system for both Part 27 and Part 29 rotorcraft; this experience was key in developing the common installation methods that are central to the award of this AML STC. 
The AML STC allows for the installation of RANGR ADS­-B avionics into a wide variety of rotorcraft, including Airbus Helicopters AS350s, Bell 206s and Robinson R22s, among others.
