AMI Aviation Services, LLC has completed a supplemental type certificate (STC) for the Garmin G950 NXi next generation integrated flight deck, with optional APS 65 autopilot integration, in the Beechcraft 1900D, the company said.
The G950 NXi system is nearly identical to the King Air G1000 NXi System but works instead with the existing autopilot (if installed).
This upgrade eliminates 225 pounds of weight and removes the end-of-life factory installed EFIS 84 system, legacy navigation and communication radios, as well as other analog instrumentation.
The program installs a modern, proven and affordable fully integrated three-display Garmin G950 System with all new shelves and nearly 5,000 feet of new wiring.
AMI Aviation Services parent company, AeroMech Incorporated, issued the amended supplemental type certification via its FAA Organizational Designation Authorization (ODA). The installation for the G950 retrofit will take place at its Orlando Sanford International Airport facility (KSFB).
In addition, AMI Aviation will distribute the STC to qualified Garmin dealers worldwide as part of a complete FAA PMA kit designed to minimize downtime.
