Shadin Avionics is once again able to demonstrate the wide application of their AIS-380 configurable converter platform with Advent Aircraft Systems’ recent successful flight test of a Pilatus PC-12NG utilizing their eABS™ anti-skid braking system. The AIS-380, operating as a Digital Electronic Control Unit (DECU) for the eABS™ system, was critical to the success of the flight test which ultimately exceeded the operator’s expectations. The STC for the PC-12 is expected to be issued in April and the aircraft will join the Eclipse EA500/550, King Air B300, and Textron Aviation Defense T-6B/C as aircraft certified with the eABS™.
